Judgment has just been approved in the case of R (o.t.a.) Harrold v Nursing & Midwifery Council  EWHC 3027 (Admin), in which Adam Solomon represented the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), the nursing regulator, in the full appeal against the decision to strike of the registrant nurse. The appeal was against refusing to adjourn the disciplinary proceedings, against the finding of misconduct and impairment, and against the sanction of strike off. Adam successfully upheld the decision. This case is part of long running litigation between the parties, following an interim application to strike out for abuse and delay (reported as  EWHC 2555 (Admin)) and following the related cases of Nursing & Midwifery Council v Harrold (no.1)  IRLR 497 and Nursing & Midwifery Council v Harrold (no. 2)  IRLR 497. These were ground breaking cases, which established the proposition that the High Court has jurisdiction to make civil restraint orders affecting the Employment Tribunal (Harrold no.1) and that in the particular circumstances of this case, such an order should be made (Harrold no. 2).
