A crowdfunded legal case brought about by a group of anti-5G campaigners has been rejected by a High Court judge on the grounds that mainstream scientists agree that 5G technology poses no greater risk to health than other wireless technologies.
The judge said: "The defendants have set out their (rational, scientifically based) view that there is nothing fundamentally different about the physical characteristics of the radio signals produced by 5G compared to those produced by 3G and 4G."
Action Against 5G, the group that has filed the application, says they will continue to battle to try to obtain a judicial review as their cause is "supported by many people nationwide from all walks of life, including doctors and scientists".
Three complainants are behind the legal action; two are battling to stop the rollout of the technology while the third individual, Rosalyn Rock, claims that she has already been harmed by 5G.
The group has acknowledged the setback publicly but said: "Without delay the amazing Michael Mansfield QC, and barristers Philip Rule and Lorna Hackett, have swiftly lodged a renewal notice seeking permission for a hearing."
