Westwater Advocates’ KC and Junior Counsel in judicial review success


Westwater Advocates’ Calum MacNeill KC and junior counsel David Anderson recently represented the successful respondent in the case of Redcroft Care Homes Limited v. City of Edinburgh Council [2023] CSOH 95.  The case involved a challenge to a local authority’s decision to decline to provide additional funding to a provider of care services.  The Lord Ordinary held that the decision was not amenable to judicial review, and, in any event, the decision was not unlawful in administrative law.  The case is reported on the Scottish Courts website https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/docs/default-source/cos-general-docs/pdf-docs-for-opinions/2023csoh95.pdf?sfvrsn=bb3fc2aa_1
