John McKendrick successfully defends the Secretary of State for Justice

John acted for the Secretary of State defending a challenge to the purported failure of the Secretary of State’s officials to provide the claimant with access to rehabilitative resources to permit his release from prison.

Mr Justice Kerr dismissed all four grounds of challenge in the claim for judicial review (R ota Tait v SSJD [2015] EWHC 2952 (Admin)), applying the Supreme Court’s decision of R. (on the application of Kaiyam) v Secretary of State for Justice [2014] UKSC 66, [2015] A.C. 1344.

The case can be found on Westlaw here (subscribers only).
