Mr Dolan sought judicial review of the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations (SI 2020/350) which gave effect to the “lockdown” in March 2020.
Today (01.12.20), the Court of Appeal handed down its judgement dismissing Mr Dolan’s appeal and refusing permission to appeal to the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeal held that the Secretary of State did have the power (or “vires”) to make the Regulations, and that his other arguments (including under the ECHR) were academic and were in any event unarguable.
