The Guardian has just posted this story:
The politician, who was also barred from standing for election for three years, was found to have deliberately lied about his Liberal Democrat rival in campaign literature.
He was quickly suspended by the Labour party, which said it would not support any subsequent legal battle to have the decision overturned.
Shamash said: "It is correct [that the judicial review request has been lost] but we are renewing it immediately. It was not about the substance, it was about the jurisdiction."
The judge decided that judicial review was not the appropriate course, he said.
"We say it is and we think he has got it wrong."
More details soon ...
