Injunction enforcement

February 10th, 2017 by James Goudie KC

In Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall MBCs v Green and Charlesworth (2017) EWHC 96 (QB) the Councils had obtained injunctions against persons unknown prohibiting car cruising in a specified area and the issue before the High Court was sentence for breach.  Suspended sentences of imprisonment were imposed on two offenders who had breached the injunction. They had been part of a convoy of nine cars that had deliberately flouted the injunction and caused nuisance and disruption to local residents.  An aggravating feature was the uploading of a video to social media inviting others to join them.
