The United Kingdom courts have handed down two judgments today that seem to deal with interesting issues.
In Public Law Project v The Lord Chancellor, a unanimous Court of Appeal held that a residence-based test for qualifying for legal aid does not amount to illegal discrimination. Lord Justice Laws wrote the opinion of the unanimous court.
In Keyu v Secretary of State, the UK Supreme Court refused an application for judicial review to direct the Government to order an enquiry into the facts of a massacre of civilians, allegedly committed by British soldiers in Malaysia in 1948. The verdict was 4 – 1, with Lady Hale dissenting.
I haven’t read either case yet, but it does seem from their descriptions that they will touch upon issues relevant and topical for Indian constitutional jurisprudence as well.
