Woman who delayed children's referendum outcome for three years takes legal action on abortion resultA WOMAN WHO previously delayed the enactment of the Children’s Referendum by nearly three years through litigation has lodged a challenge to the abortion referendum in the High Court.
Joanna Jordan attempted to overturn the result of the 2012 referendum but ultimately failed.
Court documents filed show that Jordan will challenge the result under the 1994 Referendum Act, the Sunday Times reported this morning.
Under Irish law, a challenge to a result of the referendum must be filed within seven days of the provisional result of the vote.
Well, this is welcome news, one I wasn't expecting despite all the shenanigans going on.
Sadly because of the previous failure by her in failing to stop the Children's Referendum result, I doubt she will have much luck in stopping this one.
I wasn't even aware that she delayed the children's referendum for 3 years. I somehow see the court case for this latest challenge being forced through the courts.
