The Good Law Project, Regina (on The Application of) v Electoral Commission and Another: Admn 23 Mar 2018

The claimant interest group sought judicial review of alleged failure of the Electoral Commission properly to discharge its responsibility to oversee spending of Vote Leave Limited and certain other campaigners in the period leading up to the referendum held in June 2016 on whether or not the UK should remain a member of the European Union. Permission to proceed with the claim was refused when the claim was considered on the papers but the request for permission has been renewed at an oral hearing.
