Judgment from High Court of England and Wales on Slopping out

A decision of the English High Court on slopping out can be found here.

Delivered today, it holds that using a bucket is not of itself inhuman or degrading treatment. All of the circumstances of the slopping out and conditions of detention must be taken into account. This is in keeping with ECHR jurisprudence, but is to be contrasted with the recent Scottish decision of Greens.
