Date Set For NMA Court of Appeal Hearing

The one-day hearing in which the NMA will appeal against the outcome of the judicial review of the Press Recognition Panel’s decision to recognise IMPRESS will be held on 17 January next year.

Last month, the Court of Appeal granted the News Media Association leave to appeal, meaning that the legal status of IMPRESS as a "recognised regulator" remains under challenge.

The NMA has always maintained that the PRP’s decision to recognise IMPRESS was deeply flawed. At the time of the High Court judgement last October, the NMA said that no significant publishers had signed up to IMPRESS and none would do so.
