The Claimant was a 72-year-old resident of a site at Dale Farm in breach of planning law. The council proposed to carry out a direct action eviction. She brought a claim for breach of the Human Rights Act 1998 and sought an interim injunction to prevent the eviction. The High Court refused the injunction but granted a temporary stay for 7 days to allow the council to review the latest medical evidence about the claimant.
