Single Homeless Project: Will a County Court Judge rule that we consented to declarations for online referral that we are paying our own salaries and that we are both two lunatics?

Declan and I are clients of the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme. Last May we were housed by the Single Homeless Project (SHP), one of three charitable organisations that operate the Housing First service. Declan is currently suing SHP under the Data Protection Act for circulating among any number of support agencies via online referral that we consented to declarations that we are paying our own salaries and that we are both mentally ill. Since submitting his claim to the Royal Courts of Justice on 12 September, Declan has repeatedly told SHP GLA Housing First in writing and verbally that the immediate and thorough rectification of our data is a prerequisite to any discussion about Look Ahead Care and Support taking over our support (see blog of 23 October, "Look Ahead Care and Support: Seeking to illegally break our contract with the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme under threat of eviction"). Declan wrote this email to SHP GLA Housing First tonight very much with an eviction court trial in mind:

Heavey v Single Homeless Project
Brief details of claim

On 19 March 2014, the Claimant made a formal Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998 for any information held about him on the Defendant’s computerised database. This information was only submitted by the Defendant to the Claimant on 5 August 2014, following instruction from the Information Commissioner's Office. The Claimant then discovered that personal data contained in a printed referral form dated 17 March 2014 had been inaccurately entered online by the Defendant and submitted to the Clearing House for accommodation purposes. On 15 August 2014, the Claimant and his employer both wrote to the Defendant about inaccurate financial data that leaves the Claimant open to accusations of deception and fraud, but neither has been able to elicit a response from the Defendant on the matter. The Claimant is therefore making an application to the Court for a declaration that the Defendant has acted unlawfully and an order that the data controller rectify those financial data and any other personal data in respect of which he is the data controller and which contain an expression of opinion which appears to the Court to be based on the inaccurate financial data. He also seeks an award of damages and punitive damages for breach of data protection obligations.
