||31 July 2001
Judicial review - Delay - Reason for delay - Claimant complaining to Press Complaints Commission about long lens photographs - Press Complaints Commission rejecting complaint - Claimant instituting judicial review proceedings after three month time limit - Claimant submitting claim raising issues of substantial importance - Whether time limit subject to an overriding factor based on strength of case - CPR 54.5(1).
Rules on time limits for submitting an application could not be ignored solely if the argueability and significance of the claim constituted a reason for extending time. That would imply that the rules on the circumstances of extending the three-month time limit were subject to an overriding factor based on the strength of the claim.
