Upcoming Cases at Cambridge Magistrates Court

Richard Taylor made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Gwasanaeth Llysoedd a Thribiwnlysoedd EM

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

This is a freedom of information request for information held by HM Courts Service,

With respect to Cambridge Magistrates Court could you please release the dates, times, parties involved, and type of hearing with respect to upcoming:

1. Appeals against Cambridge City Council licensing decisions.

2. Cases involving breaches of the by-laws of the River Cam.

3. Cases where the police, NHS, or local councils are a party to a case.

In addition could you please let me know if the Cambridge Magistrates Court routinely alert the media to cases expected to be of public interest; and if so provide me with a list of such cases.

I believe the information I am seeking is subject to the Freedom of Information Act, it does not appear to me to be covered by the exemption in section 33 of the act which excludes "court records". I am seeking information held by the courts service, not court documents themselves.

Many thanks,

--

Dear Richard Taylor,

SUBJECT: Freedom of Information Request

Thank you for your correspondence of March 15, 2010, in which you asked
for information about Cambridge Magistrates Court under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

You will receive a response from us by April 14, 2010. Your request has
been passed to the appropriate business unit within the MoJ, and they
will write to you with their decision by this date.

The FOIA does provide a number of exemptions. A qualified exemption
requires that before relying on it we must consider the public interest
test. If the information you have requested is covered by a qualified
exemption(s) under FOIA, the Department is allowed to take longer than
20 working days to respond. This is because in such circumstances we are
required to consider the public interest issues when deciding whether or
not to disclose the information requested.

If more time is needed to consider the public interest issues under a
qualified exemption(s), we will write to you and inform you of the
revised date you can expect to receive a response to your request.

If you have any queries regarding this request please do not hesitate to
contact us. Please quote ref: FOI/64218/10 in all future correspondence.

Yours sincerely,

Darren Over
