R (on the application of Plant) v Somerset County Council and another

Housing – Local authority. The Administrative Court refused the second defendant local authority permission to contest the claim out of time and to seek revocation of the mandatory order made against it, but found that it had already discharged its housing duty to the claimant. It further held that the first defendant local authority's pursuit of a possession order against the claimant had not amounted to a disproportionate, irrational and unlawful interference with his rights.
