Court refuses permission in 10pm curfew challenge


The High Court has today refused the G-A-Y nightclub chain permission to apply for judicial review of the 10pm national curfew. Nicholas Chapman acted for the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

The claimant alleged that the Government’s decision to impose the curfew in the hospitality sector was irrational, unreasoned and breached its rights under the ECHR. In refusing permission, Mr Justice Lane ruled that all the grounds of challenge are unarguable. The claimant has been given 7 days to apply to renew its application.

Nicholas is led by Sir James Eadie QC.
