Hendy v Ministry of Justice

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimant, H, was a lawyer with the defendant Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Two colleagues made allegations against him and a disciplinary process was commenced. H made an application to the Chancery Division, seeking an interim injunction restraining the pursuit of his disciplinary process. In dismissing the application, the court held that if there had been any degree of unfairness in what had happened, then it had not been of such a degree as to taint the whole process to such an extent as to require it, even arguably, to be brought to a halt.
