Judgement for the case Beatty v Gillbanks

There was an order binding over the leaders of the Salvation army to prevent them parading through the town for fear that it was v. likely that a rival group would attack them as in previous instances. The divisional court argued that since the Salvation Army’s march was lawful and did not attempt to cause any violence. Therefore to stop them marching would be to punish a person doing a lawful act on the grounds that it would lead to another doing an unlawful act. Therefore the order was quashed.
