PRESS RELEASE EMBARGOED UNTIL APRIL 16th
Do not read this before April 16th
HHJ Moloney's judgment has now been overturned in the court of appeal.
The Prankster welcomes the Court of Appeal decision which provided much needed clarity on the issue. The judgment sets a precedent as it now becomes case law and will be referred to by other Courts in matters of a similar nature. However, in some cases, everything will still be as clear as mud.
Lord Justice Briggs commented: “But in my opinion the judge's finding... was based upon a view of the law for which there is no authority, which is wrong in principle and the recognition of which would have most unfortunate consequences.”
