Large Cause v Ann Summers case rejected

Posted: February 11, 2010

The claim by pressure group Large Cause that the Ann Summers store in Brewer Street, Soho, should be required to apply for a sex shop licence culminated in a two day hearing at the City of Westminster Magistrates Court, London, on February 11th.

District Judge Michael Snow rejected the private prosecution on three separate points – but they were related to who was bringing the prosecution and their reasons for doing so, rather than the nature of the case.

An application for costs has been made by Ann Summers legal team and this will be heard on March 3rd.

The full details of the case will be featured in the March issue of ETO.
