Proceedings for contempt brought by the Attorney General against Mr Tim Crosland will take place on Monday 10th May 2021.

Mr Crosland, an environmental lawyer, acted for Plan B in the case heard at the UK Supreme Court about Heathrow's third runway. In summary, the contempt proceedings involve an allegation that prior to the judgment being delivered Mr Crosland in breach of confidentiality and of an embargo issued a statement to the news wire Press Association, disclosing the Supreme Court's decision.

The proceedings against Mr Crosland will take place in Courtroom 4 of the Royal Courts of Justice on Monday 10th May 2021 at 10:30am before three Supreme Court Justices, Lord Lloyd-Jones, Lord Hamblen and Lord Stephens.

There will be limited space available due to Covid restrictions. Members of the public who wish to attend the hearing will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis in Courtroom 4 and in an overspill courtroom, Courtroom 6. Members of the media are requested to contact the UKSC Press Office if they wish to attend.
