Landmark judgment sets limit on religious freedoms

first_imgEuropean Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) judges have rejected appeals lodged by three British Christians who argued that their individual rights to express religious beliefs had been breached.Shirley Chaplin, Lillian Ladele and Gary McFarlane all lost their cases in the ECtHR in January of this year and last week attended the court again to appeal the verdicts.The appeal judges ruled that the employers of Chaplin, a nurse, were indeed justified in forbidding her to wear a crucifix while at work on health and safety grounds.The cases of Ladele and McFarlane were more complicated, since they depended upon balancing their rights against the convention rights of others.Ladele, a registrar, had declined to conduct a civil partnership ceremony on the article 9 grounds of freedom of thought, conscience and religion. McFarlane, invoking the same article, said he did not want to undertake sex therapy sessions with same-sex couples.The appeal judges ruled that their refusals breached the convention rights of the civil partnership and sex therapy couples, namely the article 14 prohibition on discrimination and the article 8 right to respect for private and family life.City firm Charles Russell employment head Michael Powner said: ‘This sends a stark message that religious freedoms have very limited parameters when they potentially or actually infringe the rights of others.‘When different convention rights compete in different factual scenarios, the line has to be drawn somewhere. What is now certain is that one set of rights, here for religious freedom for Christians, does not automatically trump the others.’last_img read more

Insurers lose High Court discount rate challenge

first_imgMr Justice BakerSitting in the administrative court, Mr Justice Andrew Baker said the government was not acting unlawfully and refused permission for a judicial review. The ABI said it intends to appeal.James Dalton, ABI director of general insurance policy, said his members were open to a proper dialogue on how to reform the system, but ‘caving in to legal threats’ from personal injury lawyers was not the way for the MoJ to do it.Dalton added: ‘Despite consulting over three years ago and not letting anyone know the outcome of that process, the lord chancellor seems to want to rush out a new discount rate at a time of significant global financial uncertainty.‘While we welcome today’s commitment not to make an announcement before 31 January, we call on the lord chancellor to provide a considered timeline which gives all stakeholders the opportunity to engage in a constructive dialogue on the way forward.’The discount rate is set to calculate deductions from injured people’s compensation to reflect the interest the payments are assumed to earn.The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) has campaigned for years that the current rate – 2.5%, set by the lord chancellor in 2001 – is too high and penalises claimants.‘For far too long, people with lifelong and life-altering injuries have faced running out of compensation, or had to risk their compensation on uncertain investments to try to make up the shortfall, because insurers do not have to pay the full amount needed,’ said Neil Sugarman, APIL president.‘Insurers have been getting away with undercompensating vulnerable injured people for years,’ said Sugarman. The High Court has thrown out a last-ditch attempt by insurers to delay the government’s announcement on the rate used to calculate discounts on compensation awards.  The Association of British Insurers had argued in court this week for an injunction to stop the Ministry of Justice delivering its promise to make a decision by the end of this month.The legal challenge was opposed by claimant lawyers who have campaigned for an adjustment to the rate for many years.last_img read more
