|Contempt of Court

Pursuant to paragraph 13 of Practice Direction:Committal for Contempt of Court-Open Court.

In case number A01LB538 Metropolitan Housing Trust Ltd -v- Titus Lucas, on 17 November 2015 whilst sitting at Lambeth county court, I sentenced Titus Lucas to a suspended custodial sentence of 1 month less 7 days for time on remand, suspended for 6 months because on 9 November he had breached an injunction granted in July 2014 which was varied on 6 November 2015 to forbid him from remaining in or entering his flat: he refused to leave when served with the injunction in the prescence of a number of police officers. I suspended the sentence because it was a negative rather than a positive breach which had caused no harm directly to any persons covered by the injunction
