If your paper application for permission to proceed with the Cart JR in High Court has been refused by the High Court judge, you have 7 days to file an application for decision to refuse permission to be reconsidered at an oral hearing.

At an Oral Permission Hearing (OPH) the claimant (normally via their legal representatives) before a single High Court judge will explain why they should be granted permission and the Defendant will be given an opportunity to explain why permission should not be granted. The Defendant will instruct a barrister (counsel) to argue why permission should be refused. The High Court will then decide whether permission should be granted. A claim that is certified as being ‘totally without merit’ cannot renew to an Oral Permission Hearing (OPH).

Sometimes an Oral Permission Hearing (OPH) is heard at the same time as the substantive hearing and this is called a rolled up hearing. This is more likely to happen where one party has made an application for the case to be expedited (i.e. heard sooner). A rolled up hearing has the advantage of getting the matter dealt with quickly and in practice is cheaper than the two stage process. At a rolled up hearing the judge will decide whether to grant permission as well as deciding the outcome of the judicial review if permission is granted.

If permission to proceed with Cart Judicial Review (JR) is granted, the matter will proceed to substantive JR hearing. If permission is refused, the Counsel for the claimant can seek permission from the High Court to appeal to the Court of Appeal against the decision of the High Court to refuse permission to proceed with the Cart Judicial Review (JR).
