The court case is being held at the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand on Tuesday 14th June 2016. It is a verbal hearing to establish if we we can get a judicial review on the case of Simon Goodall v Reading Borough Council.  The case is where Reading Borough Council turned off the traffic lights and left blind and disabled people standing at the lights not being able to cross the road.  It was a high profile on the TV, with the case being shown on the BBC One show
