Some policies and practices adopted by the First-Tier Tribunal (FTT) and the Upper Tribunal (UT) affect the way in which appeals and judicial reviews are run.
One such practice was to automatically strike out a claim if the Upper Tribunal’s ‘Certificate of Service’ form was not sent within nine days of the claim being issued. We argued that this blank , automatic practice was unlawful. The UT has now altered the wording so that automatic strike out is no longer the consequence of failure to provide such a form.
If you have been negatively affected by one of these policies or practices, and we think that it is unlawful or unfair, we may be able to challenge these on your behalf by way of judicial review.
