Novartis Parmaceuticals UK Ltd v Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The first claimant was a company involved in conducting research for the purposes of the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The first defendant, under an umbrella group was known as 'SHAC'; Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty. The second defendants were people who intended, or who were likely to embark upon, a course of protest amounting to, at the least, unlawful harassment. The claimants sought final injunctive relief against the second defendants. The Queen's Bench Division granted the injunctive relief in respect of persons unknown as it was just and convenience to do so.
