Court of Appeal gives Permission to Appeal in Levi Roots Case

23-08-2012 09:57

Regular readers of our blog may recall our report on the case of Bailey & Another v Graham & Others [2011] EWHC 3098 in December 2011.  You can read it here.

The Claimants, who lost the case, have now successfully won an application to appeal the decision for a number of reasons, including the fact that the Claimants argue that the Judge at the original trial did not refer to certain matters in his judgment which had been given in evidence and also because the Claimants have raised issues about the Judge’s findings of fact.  

The Claimants have also made an application to adduce evidence from a psychologist who has evaluated the first Claimant and his reactions to being cross-examined.  This will be dealt with at the Appeal Hearing.

The case will now be sent of to be listed in the Court of Appeal.

Watch this space for further developments.
