The Court of Appeal will rule later this month on a Dublin woman’s challenge against the abortion referendum result.
Ms Joanna Jordan from Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin has appealed last month’s ruling by High Court President Mr Justice Peter Kelly. He ruled that neither Ms Jordon nor another challenger Charles Byrne met the necessary legal test set by the Referendum Act before a court can permit a petition to be brought.
