I’m currently studying law and doing a lot of writing up of notes. So here’s a write up of my notes of Judicial Review.
“judicial review is the exercise of the court’s inherent power at common law to determine whether action is lawful or not, in a word to uphold the Rule of Law.”
Simon Brown J, R v HM the Queen in Council, ex parte Vijayatunga  QB 322.
Judicial Review (JR) is the mechanism for supervising and controlling the use of State power by public bodies, by way of the High Court. JR is not concerned with whether the decision being reviewed was right or wrong, but is instead concerned only with whether the decision was made correctly by the correct person. JR is not an appeals process and does not provide the courts with the power to substitute its own decision or judgement in place of the one being reviewed (doing so would be a breach of the doctrine of separation of powers and would be contrary the purpose JR). JR has widened in scope over the last century as a result of the increased size of Government and the increased volume of regulation/legislation.
I thought that I should support the EFF more, so here’s a few banners …
Looks like some good news is being reported. Wonder whats going to happen.
So, seeing how the below text is floating around almost every european planetside forum I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I added it here. Lets hope this action gets noticed by Sony.
On behalf of Kosh:
How do you feel about cheating in an online game? I’m talking about using third party software to alter the outcome of what would otherwise be a fair fight. If you’re like most of us you despise it. It eats away at a community from the ground up and if nothing is done about it the amount of cheaters tends to grow to the point that there’s simply no room left for gamers who play by the rules. This type of cheating can really ruin a great game and frustrate a lot of people. This is the current situation with Planetside.
I’m not sure where I found this or under what understanding I made a copy of it but it was on my old website for quite some time. So I’m going to keep it until I’m asked to remove it.
