Yesterday our case was heard by the Court of Appeal (Lord Justices Hickinbottom, Singh and Treacy) in court 70 of the Royal Courts of Justice, and heard argument from the parties (Richard Harwood QC for the Friends of Finsbury Park; George Laurence QC for the Open Spaces Society; Philip Kolvin for Haringey Council and Robert McCracken QC for Wireless Festival). The Court of Appeal thanked the parties for their legal arguments and observed that this was a very interesting case. A reserved judgment was given, which means that they will go away to write their judgments and deliver them in the next month or so. We will post the judgement as soon as we have it.
