Stuart made this Freedom of Information request to Supreme Court of the United Kingdom

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

The request was partially successful.

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

If Court Judges are under an Oath of God could you please explain to me why the Sanctum is contradicted by allowing Female Judges?

1 Timothy 2:11-12

King James Version (KJV)

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Yours faithfully,


Swaile, Laura,
