New Judicial Review Challenge to Tribunal Fees

  • Posted

Last week, we reported UNISON's judicial review challenge to the tribunal fee system.

It looks like they may have been beaten to the starting line.  Fox and Partners in Scotland have lodged a petition for judicial review, challenging the introduction of tribunal fees.

Fox and Partners are seeking an interim interdict to prevent the imposition of fees on 29th July, pending a full court hearing addressing the issues.  The initial hearing is taking place tomorrow, Thursday 4th July 2013, at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

I'll be spending almost an hour of my forthcoming MasterClasses discussing tribunal fees, including the loopholes in the legislation.  The first one is next week (in Edinburgh), followed by Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester and London.  If you haven't booked, do have a look at some feedback from delegates earlier this year.
