District Court in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Polish Judicial Authorities v Adam Celinski and Others
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 06 May 2015

    In answering the question whether the district judge, in the light of those findings of fact, was wrong to decide that extradition was or was not proportionate, the focus must be on the outcome, that is on the decision itself. Although the district judge's reasons for the proportionality decision must be considered with care, errors and omissions do not of themselves necessarily show that the decision on proportionality itself was wrong.

  • Crabb v Arun District Council
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Jul 1975

    If I may expand that, Lord Cairns said: "It is the first principle upon which all Courts of Equity proceed", that it will prevent a person from insisting on his strict legal rights — whether arising under a contract, or on his title deeds, or by statute — when it would be inequitable for him to do so having regard to the dealings which have taken place between the parties, see Hughes v. Metropolitan Railway (1877) 2 A.C. at page 448.

  • Norris v Government of the United States of America (No 2)
    • Supreme Court
    • 24 Feb 2010

    The reality is that only if some quite exceptionally compelling feature, or combination of features, is present that interference with family life consequent upon extradition will be other than proportionate to the objective that extradition serves.

  • HH v Deputy Prosecutor of the Italian Republic, Genoa
    • Supreme Court
    • 20 Jun 2012

    (7) Hence it is likely that the public interest in extradition will outweigh the article 8 rights of the family unless the consequences of the interference with family life will be exceptionally severe.

  • Cocks v Thanet District Council
    • House of Lords
    • 25 Nov 1982

    Once a decision has been reached by the housing authority which gives rise to the temporary, the limited or the full housing duty, rights and obligations are immediately created in the field of private law. But it is inherent in the scheme of the Act that an appropriate public law decision of the housing authority is a condition precedent to the establishment of the private law duty.

  • Suffolk Coastal District Council v Hopkins Homes Ltd; Richborough Estates Partnership LLP v Cheshire East Borough Council
    • Supreme Court
    • 10 May 2017

    It must be remembered that, whether in a development plan or in a non-statutory statement such as the NPPF, these are statements of policy, not statutory texts, and must be read in that light. Furthermore, the courts should respect the expertise of the specialist planning inspectors, and start at least from the presumption that they will have understood the policy framework correctly.

  • Rot v District Court of Lublin Poland
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 23 Jun 2010

    The question must therefore be addressed and answered in such a case: would the mental condition of the person to be extradited make it oppressive to extradite him?
