Harriet Johnson secures acquittal in animal rights protest case

27.01.15 | |

Harriet Johnson has successfully represented two defendants in a group of animal rights protesters facing trial for public order offences in Cambridge.  The case was abandoned against one defendant at the half-way point after Harriet was able to persuade the District Judge that there was no case to answer.  The other defendant was acquitted at the end of the trial, when Harriet successfully argued that the defendant's conduct amounted to lawful protest, and that the prosecution was a disproportionate interference in her Article 10 and 11 rights.  Harriet was instructed by Laura Higgs of Bindmans LLP.
