A dissenting judgment in the UK House of Lords in the Holy Cross case. In this case the House of Lords dismissed a challenge to the policing of Loyalist disturbances around the Holy Cross Girls School in North Belfast in 2001. The judgment concludes that the police did owe positive obligations to the school children and their families under Article 3 ECHR which were not fulfilled by the operation put in place to contain the disturbances.
