Ogilvy v The Minister of Legal Affairs (Reasons for a decision upon a Notice of Motion): PC 13 Feb 2002

(St Lucia) The appellant had sought to challenge the refusal of his application for a position as a magistrate in St Lucia. This was his second application. The committee would only accept second petitions in exceptional circumstances, and none such had been shown here. The basis of the claim was that his application had been rejected by a procedure inconsistent with the constitution.
