CoA’s judgment in AT
The Court of Appeal’s judgment in the Secretary of State’s appeal against the UT’s December 2022 decision in Secretary of State for Work and Pensions v AT (Aire Centre and IMA intervening) has just been issued ...
‘I would dismiss the appeal on all grounds ...’
Check out the rightsnet WR case law later section later this afternoon for our summary ...
Judgment is here (although I am also keenly awaiting the summary….) - https://cpag.org.uk/sites/default/files/files/Final-Judgment-CA-2023-000085-SSWP-v-AT-08.11.2023.pdf
The SSWP has been refused permission to appeal to Supreme Court by Court of Appeal. If a further permission application to Supreme Court is made (or is being contemplated) then SSWP will presumably continue to stay cases pending the resolution of that (and any further appeal if permission obtained).
Our advice continues to be that SSWP should apply the judgment in any case where not to do so would cause hardship- so the important point is don’t think there is nothing that can be done for clients who need to rely on the judgment.[ Edited: 8 Nov 2023 at 02:16 pm by Martin Williams ]
rightsnet summary of the judgment now published - congrats to CPAG on brilliant outcome -
The EU Rights Hub has also now published a write-up of the new judgment:
Any sign of an application to the SC? I know there’s still a week to go but all the same, I’m gagging to know. As will my Tribunal on 18th of next month.
