Paula Walters v DWP (2019) SEE HERE  (My client, the Claimant was unsuccessful, but the case provides non-binding guidance that nationalism is likely to be a belief that is protected by the Equality Act 2010)

Robinson v Ramsbottom (2020) (A case heard by His Honour Judge Sephton QC, where Joseph Chiffers successfully represented a collector of rare tattooing artefacts.  Our client’s unique Christian Warlich sketchbook had been damaged by another collector).

Penny Lane Claims v Channon (2021) et al (Joseph Chiffers is successfully represented the Respondent in a High Court Appeal heard by Mr Justice Snowden.  The case was very similar to Manchester Shipping Ltd v Balfour Shipping Ltd & Anor [2020] EWHC 164, which had been heard shortly before –  SEE HERE)

Lodhia v Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police  (2022)- this case is pending at the time of writing.  The Claimant wishes to set a precedent that will use the Human Rights Act 1998 to regulate the use of the 'Released Under Investigation' scheme.  This scheme was introduced as a result of the 28 day time limit being placed on bailed suspects pursuant to the Policing and Crime Act 2007.  The RUI scheme has arguably resulted in substantial delays in offences being investigated.  A suspect who is subject to RUI has the prospect of a prosecution hanging over them, which will inevitably cause distress.   .
