Government plans to limit the number of judicial reviews have been condemned by lawyers and campaign groups. A six-week consultation on the proposals, which the justice secretary says would stop ‘weak or ill-founded’ claims clogging the courts, ended last week apparently without a single response in favour. The reforms would cut the time limit for bringing judicial reviews from three months to six weeks, remove the right to oral renewal hearings, and raise the £60 fee to £235. Responding to the consultation, groups including the Law Society and Bar Council highlighted the importance to the rule of law of decisions by public bodies being subject to challenge by judicial review. Director of human rights policy at campaign group Justice, Angela Patrick, warned the changes would ‘significantly inhibit’ judicial oversight of decisions. Opponents said that the reforms lacked detail and were based on anecdotal assertions without hard evidence. The Public Law Project added that these shortcomings rendered the consultation ‘flawed’. The proposals would make the civil justice system ‘more unfair, more inefficient and more inaccessible’, it said. The Bar Council suggested that the changes would fuel additional satellite litigation and lead to increased work for the Court of Appeal. The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law added: ‘If implemented, the proposals would be likely to make the law more complicated and more uncertain, and may serve to divert more cases into the courts by limiting the time available for non-litigious resolution of disputes.’ While the bar accepted that the government should seek to reduce delays, it said the problem ‘is complex and needs a carefully thought-out solution’. ‘Tinkering with time limits and oral hearings following an absurdly short consultation is not the answer.’Chancery Lane also voiced concern about the short consultation period, particularly as it covered the Christmas and New Year holiday, warning: ‘The right to bring a judicial review to the courts is too important to be impaired by hasty reforms.’
WiTricity is working with General Motors (GM) to test an advanced wireless charging system prototype for electric vehicles. The companies are working together to test WiTricity’s Drive 11 park and charge system, designed for maximum efficiency and interoperability across vehicle platforms. The prototype testing focuses on wireless charging systems at 7.7 and 11 kW charge rates, capable of charging both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), and is intended to comply with standards proposed by SAE International’s J2954 Committee.GM is committed to offering customers a variety of electrification solutions, including a great charging experience. To improve understanding of real world performance and the challenges integrating this technology into vehicles, GM is testing WiTricity’s prototype wireless charging system, which allows a driver to simply pull into his or her garage and automatically receive power from a source below the vehicle. The system design works across all plug-in electric vehicle platforms and can be deployed as a “floor pad” in a consumer’s garage, as well as installed under pavement to provide wireless charging in public and commercial parking lots.WiTricity is committed to catalyzing EV adoption through flexible park and charge experiences. The company is working with major automakers and Tier 1 suppliers to bring the next generation of wireless EV charging to a commercial reality. Licensing agreements have been announced with Toyota, Delphi, TDK, IHI and BRUSA. WiTricity is also collaborating directly with leading carmakers to drive global standards for wireless charging systems. Standards initiatives the company is involved in include the SAE International, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), STILLE and China Automotive Technology & Research Center (CATARC).
