NF v FIRST TIER TRIBUNAL AND CICA  UKUT 287 This case involved two separate applications. In the first case, the Applicant applied to the CICA for compensation arising out of an assault that occurred in Scotland. She herself lived in Scotland. Her claim was rejected by the Authority and so she applied for a review, which again was rejected. She then sought to appeal out of time, and her application to extend the time limit was rejected along with the appeal. That decision was taken by a Tribunal Judge in England. She then applied for judicial review to the Upper Tribunal. Full report here.
FL v FIRST-TIER TRIBUNAL AND CICA  UKUT 158 (AAC) (18 May 2010) The Applicant was born in 1966. She attended a special school and from 1978 to 1981 she was emotionally abused by a member of staff. No complaint to the police was made at the time, but a relatively large scale police investigation was carried out in 1992. Several members of staff of the school, including the person in respect of whom the Applicant’s comments were made, were prosecuted for conspiracy to falsely imprison the children at the school (including acts of violence) but were acquitted by the jury after a lengthy trial.
