R (LM) v FIRST TIER TRIBUNAL  UKUT 179 These were two linked cases brought under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2001. The numbers of the cases were JR/1406/2009 and JR/1416/2009. The Applicant had been born in 1969 and had been subjected to physical and sexual abuse by her father as well as being abused by a paedophile ring. She made two applications, one in respect of the abuse at home and the other in respect of the abuse that she had suffered as a child. There had been a police investigation, but due to insufficient evidence, no prosecution was warranted. The applications were rejected due to insufficient evidence and the Applicant appealed to the First Tier Tribunal. Full report here.
