The government argues that Investigatory Powers Tribunal rulings cannot be subject to judicial review, Privacy International challenges that view and has now taken it to the Supreme Court.

"This case is really quite significant. If we are successful, that the judgment is going to be far-reaching. The court seemed to be taking the question seriously. That was also indicated by the fact it was a seven Justice panel, which they usually reserve for the more serious cases." – Caroline Wilson Palo, Privacy International.
