Carney, Regina (on the Application of) v North Lincolnshire Council: CA 8 Feb 2002

The claimant had brought a case that a strip of land was a highway maintainable at public expense, but had failed. After some time he requested the judge to state a case. The recorder refused saying that no error of law was identified and that the claimant had delayed unduly. He now sought judicial review of the refusal.
Held: The application was out of time, and no error had been demonstrated. The request for leave was refused.
