Mazhar v Lord Chancellor

Human rights – Right to liberty and security. There was nothing in the Human Rights Act 1998 (the HRA 1998), taken together either with the CPR or the FPR, that provided a power in a court or tribunal to make a declaration against the Crown in respect of a judicial act. The Family Division further held that the HRA 1998 had not modified the constitutional principle of judicial immunity and the Crown was not to be held vicariously liable for the acts of the judiciary.
