Honourable Attorney General and another v Isaac (Antigua and Barbuda)

Judicial review – Leave to apply for judicial review. The respondent's fixed date claim had been, in reality as in form, merely for declarations and damages, and had not been an application for judicial review for which leave had been required. Accordingly, the Privy Council, having considered the distinguishing features of an application for judicial review within Pt 56 of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Civil Procedure Rules 2000, dismissed the appellants' appeal against the refusal to strike out the claim on the basis that it had been filed without the required leave.
