R (on the application of CLAIRE WAXMAN) v CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (2012)

PUBLISHED February 2, 2012

[2012] EWHC 133 (Admin)

The commencement and service of civil proceedings were capable of amounting to harassment since they were a form of conduct that might well cause anxiety, alarm and distress. The prevention of harassment was a legitimate social objective that was capable of justifying a restriction of a litigant's rights under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.6.
