Disciplinary & Regulatory Injunctions

Disciplinary and regulatory injunctions are growing in popularity and scope. Littleton barristers have been at the heart of recent developments.

Our members have been involved in developing the new area of Article 6 ECHR injunctions in disciplinary hearings including Kulkarni v Milton Keynes NHS Trust [2010] ICR 101 and R (G) v Governors of X School [2011] UKSC 30; [2011] 3 WLR 237.

Our members have also been involved in contractual injunctive applications restraining dismissals and breaches of internal disciplinary rules including Everett v University of East London [2009] EWCA Civ 402, an injunction to restrain the dismissal of a University Vice Chancellor and Lauffer v Barking Havering & Redbridge NHS Trust [2010] Med. L.R. 68 injunction to restrain dismissal of a  consultant surgeon.

In the regulatory arena members have also been instructed on high profile injunction applications to restrain or enforce rules. Our cases include Dwain Chambers v British Olympic Association [2008] EWHC 2028 (QB), an injunction application seeking to restrain the BOA from preventing a sprinter from running in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
