Scuffle of the week

The Home Office v the High Court. Home Secretary Jack Straw has been urged by Mr Justice Scott Baker to "reconsider" his decision to deport London commodities broker Ben James to Nigeria, and to refer the decision to an adjudicator to review all the evidence. James, who has lived in the UK all his adult life, was represented by Winstanley Burgess partner David Burgess (pictured) and Stephanie Harrison of 2 Garden Court, London, in a judicial review of Straw's decision at the High Court last week. Burgess says: "Given James was about to be deported within two hours at one point, we call this a great success."
