Prisoner’s segregation was not unlawful


Re: R (Dennehy) v Secretary of State for Jusice & Sodexo Limited [2016] EWHC 1219 (Admin)

The claimant prisoner challenged her segregation under the Prison Rules, r 45, arguing that it was unlawful, procedurally unfair, contrary to ECHR, arts 3, 8 and 14 and irrational. The court dismissed the judicial review claim.

Hugh Southey QC and Sarah Hannett were involved in this case.
