County Court at Central London: Complaint to the Information Commissioner under the Data Protection Act 1998

County Court at Central London, Royal Courts of Justice

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. A month later Declan was told by the Court's telephone service that he would only have the GLA's application to dispute the Court’s jurisdiction served upon him by 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 sealed paperwork for the Court of Appeal. The Data Protection Act allows up to 40 days for the Court's response to Declan's Subject Access Request (SAR) of 15 October 2015 to be posted to him. However, we have yet to receive either the judge's order or a written response to Declan's SAR from the Court, which Royal Mail tells us was received by them on 19 October 2015 (over 40 days ago). This is Declan's initial SAR complaint to the Information Commissioner:
