Terrorism Act injunction thrown out of Court!

We're happy to report that the Terrorism Act injunction brought against Blacklisted worker and Trades Unionist Steve Acheson has been thrown out of the High Court today.

The Judge dismissed the application by Scottish & Southern Energy, branding their application "fantasy bordering on the edge of paranoia", and added "This court exists to grant injunctions in urgent cases. It does not exist to grant injunctions which might be thought to be convenient to applicants". Acheson was also awarded costs.

Scottish and Southern Energy have now stated their intention to apply to the local County Court, but this would seem foolhardy as a higher court has already rejected this application - a high risk strategy has not paid off so far.
