The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

Run Out of Town

This is a report of a man given an ASBO banning him from his home town. If the reports are correct he certainly sounds like a nasty piece of work, and his neighbours must be sick of him. How long though before a Human Rights case based on his right to family life under Article 8? It's a qualified right, but his solicitor may think that it's worth a run.
