UK Supreme Court heard inaugural case
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On October 5, 2009, the UK Supreme Court held its first session, hearing an appeal by a group of four terrorism suspects whose assets were frozen by the government. The Supreme Court, created by the Constitutional Reform Act 2005, replaced the judicial panel of the House of Lords as the highest tribunal of the UK, with 12 Law Lords from the House of Lords serving as the first Supreme Court justices.
