Past Notable Cases

 

HMRC v Mr Abubaker Arrbab [2024] EWCA Civ 16
The mandatory reconsideration scheme for tax credits was held to be ultra vires. The case is now a leading authority on the constitutional right of access to justice and has significant wider implications for vulnerable benefit claimants.

R (TMX) v London Borough of Croydon and SSHD [2024] EWHC 129 (Admin)
The local authority’s failings in the provision of accommodation, care and support for a person severely impacted by progressive multiple sclerosis breached Articles 3 & 8 ECHR; guidance on interplay between Care Act 2014 and s95 Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.

R (TW) v Essex County Council [2024] EWHC 264 (Admin); [2023] 1 W.L.R. 3439
Guidance on whether a local authority may make accommodation for homeless 16 and 17 year-olds available only on a non-Children Act 1989 s.20 basis and whether 16 and 17 year-old children in need can be asked to choose between non-s.20 accommodation or being looked after in s.20 accommodation. 

R v Maher v First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health) & Ors [2023] EWHC 34 (Admin)

On the duties owed to families accommodated through the Afghan resettlement schemes.

T(A child) [2021] UKSC 35

R (on the application of AA) v The London Borough of Southwark [2020] EWHC 2487 Admin; (2020) 23 CCL Rep 649  
This was a High Court challenge to an assessment of children in need, where the social worker had disbelieved that the family was destitute.  It is one of a growing number of ‘culture of disbelief’ cases concerning local authorities’ attitudes towards destitute migrant families. The High Court was persuaded to quash the assessment, as the court found serious flaws in the process and the social worker’s conclusions.

IO v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2020] EWHC 3420 (Admin)
