    Attorney General v Wheen [2001] IRLR 91 CA (0 other reports)

In Attorney General v Wheen [2001] IRLR 91, the Court of Appeal upholds the EAT's decision to make an order restricting vexatious proceedings under s.33 of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996. In this case, which concerns the first such order made under that provision, the Court says that the EAT rightly concluded that the requisite precondition that the relevant individual had "habitually and persistently and without any reasonable ground instituted vexatious proceedings" had been met.
