Adam Solomon QC succeeds in obtaining further injunction to prevent litigation


In NMC et al v Harrold, Chamberlain J., handed down judgment today, preventing Mrs Harrold from litigating in any High Court or County Court by way of a General Civil Restraint Order, and also extended the order by the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court to cover litigation in the Employment Tribunal and EAT. 

Other cases between the parties (and in which Adam was also successful) have been reported as [2016] IRLR 30 and [2016] IRLR 497. 

The Judgment

  1. Is a reminder to ETs that there is now a jurisdictional reason for EJs to make determinations that claims or applications were made Totally Without Merit (“TWM”);
  2. Sets out the correct test for extending GCROs (paras 20-23);
  3. Considers the extent of the High Court’s inherent jurisdiction to grant injunctive relief – and that it covers ETs and EAT but does not go so far as to prevent complaints to the relevant regulator.”
