Tribunal Fees: JR Update

  • Posted

More details are now in of this morning's Judicial Review hearing in the Court of Session.

The Judge refused to grant an interim interdict, based upon the balance of convenience, given

- his view there was a strong prima facie case to go to a full hearing, coupled with

- an undertaking from the Lord Chancellor to the effect that any fees paid after 29th July will be refunded (with interest) if the fee regime is held to be unlawful.

A further hearing will be held later this year.

Costs of the hearing were awarded to Fox Solicitors, who brought the judicial review application.
