Mathew v HM Attorney General: Admn 9 Oct 2013

Application for discharge of order declaring him to be a vexatios litigant.
Held: ‘ it ought to be for the applicant on a case by case basis to satisfy a court that any proposed new litigious activity on his behalf is justifiable and has a reasonable prospect of success. This is after all scarcely different from the burden placed on all claimants who wish to bring proceedings for judicial review. It is not disproportionate, in the circumstances of this case, to require him to continue under that limited fetter placed on his right to litigate and I would dismiss this application.’
