Government ‘unlawfully’ tried to overrule parliament’s intentions

A legal challenge is being brought against the government for its decision to abandon laws passed by parliament.

The challenge, launched by BDB Pitmans, argues that the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport lacked the legal authority to abandon implementation of online porn verification laws in October 2020.

It was given the go-ahead to bring proceedings in a high court hearing last week.

Richard Langley, Partner and Katie Smith, Senior Associate in our commercial litigation team, comment on this in an article for Solicitors Journal.
