An unoffical site has been set up for supporters of the NICE CFS/ME Judicial Review, for information and updates for those planning to attend the hearing and for those able to offer assistance with arrangements and publicity. The site can be found at: 

Please note that ME agenda site has no connection with either of the two legal cases involved.  All enquiries about the Judicial Review, including media enquiries, should be directed to the legal firms concerned or to the High Court, as appropriate.  Members of the ME community and their advocates planning to attend the Court hearing or who are able to offer assistance should direct enquiries about arrangements for what is currently scheduled for at least a two day hearing, to the web master of the NICE JR Supporters’ website.
