Central London County Court: Declan is told to apply under the Data Protection Act 1998 for a hardcopy of the Greater London Authority's application to contest the Court's jurisdiction

On 11 September 2015 the Central London County Court issued Declan's claim against the Greater London Authority (GLA) for terminating our eligibility for our flat without the right of review or appeal. Earlier this morning I blogged an extract from the GLA's application to dispute the Court’s jurisdiction, which we received by email yesterday. We received the GLA's Acknowledgment of Service in this morning's post but not its application to contest the court's jurisdiction. Declan was subsequently told by the Court's telephone service that he would only receive a hardcopy of this document from the court if the judge does not dismiss the case, and that he would therefore have to apply for it under the Data Protection Act 1998 before the judge's order if he wanted to be sure of getting the paperwork.

We of course have even less doubt now that the judge will dismiss our case on the papers, and possibly mighty quickly, leaving us out of options on the domestic front because we have already been to the High Court on the matter (see previous blog, "We have started work on our grounding letter to the European Court of Human Rights (Heavey vs. the United Kingdom) to prevent being evicted from our home before Christmas")
