Prisoners Granted Leave To Challenge Legality Of Compensation Scheme For So-Called ‘Slopping Out’ Cases

Coffey v Governor of Limerick Prison; Collopy v Governor of Limerick Prison [2024] IEHC 99 (High Court (General), Phelan J, 21 February 2024)

High Court granted two prisoners leave to bring judicial review proceedings challenging the legality of a scheme introduced to compensate prisoners who were subject to the so-called practice of ‘slopping out’. Having been incarcerated in single person cells lacking in cell sanitation, on the grounds that, given the modest threshold applying at leave stage, it is arguable the applicants have standing to challenge the lawfulness of the scheme as administered by the third named respondent on the basis that they are affected by the existence of the scheme and, indeed, have made application under it, albeit on the basis of a claim for enhanced terms falling beyond the scope of the scheme.
