McNamara v United Kingdom (App. No. 22510/13)

Human rights – Right to a fair hearing. The European Court of Human Rights held that, despite the applicant's conduct having had had a critical impact on the progress of the case, the litigation which had lasted over 18 years had taken on a scale and duration incommensurate with the simple nature of the underlying claim. Accordingly, there had been a breach of art 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
