R (on the application of Flannigan) v Director of Legal Aid Casework

Legal aid – Criminal cases. For the purposes of reg 13 of the Criminal Defence Service (Contribution Orders) Regulations 2009, SI 2009/3328, the value of assets was that at the date of the valuation exercise and not at any earlier point, in particular, not the point at which a representation order had been made. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's application for judicial review of a capital contribution order, further held that the claimant's right to peaceful possession of his property had not been violated and there was no basis on which to conclude that the power had been exercised improperly.
