'Tommy Robinson' case adjourned for written submissions

Mr Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson)'s contempt case was the subject of  posts 1 June 2018,  5 July and 1 August.

The Court of Appeal - Full Judgment (Bailii) or Full Judgment (pdf)

The appeal in respect of the committal for contempt at Leeds Crown Court was allowed.  Mr Robinson was granted bail and the matter of contempt at Leeds Crown Court was remitted to be heard by the Recorder of London at the Old Bailey.

Mr Robinson appeared at the Old Bailey today before the Recorder of London HHJ Nicholas Hilliard QC - BBC News 27 September.   The case was adjourned until October. The judge said that he would receive written submissions before making a ruling on whether there will be a substantive hearing at a later date. 

There is therefore the possibility that the matter could be dealt with on the basis of such written submissions and that leaves open the question of whether, in this high profile case, those submissions will fully enter the public domain.  Let's wait and see what happens.
