The High Court has granted permission for a judicial review of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act (DRIPA), which was ratified by Parliament in just three days and came into force in July.  MPs Tom Watson and David Davis (represented by Liberty), and the Open Rights Group and Privacy International sought the judicial review. The parties are seeking a declaration from the High Court that DRIPA is not compatible with the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Charter of Fundamental Rights.
