Lack of Justice in Housing – Judges decisionsMake Text Bigger
Letter to Gareth Johnson Member of Parliament for Dartford:
There are guidelines for when High Court Enforcement can be requested after sufficient reason has been shown to and convinced a judge, or at least there should be – I would very much like to know the answer to this and other questions raised in my letter.
It should not therefore be possible for a judge to just make it a personal choice, never to allow such a legal provision.
Another client of mine had an experience of a county court judge making a basic error in mistaking the validity of a commonly used form and wrongly dismissing a claim for possession (see www.PossessionFriend.uk/Perversedecisions) my client wrote to the Ministry of Justice to be informed that there was ‘ No complaints process against a judge ‘ save for an allegation against their conduct, racialism or other personal conduct, such as falling asleep (this is on MoJ’s web site)!
I understand that the British public respect the rule of law (only too well from my past career) and that they are held in legal reverence. However, judges, nor anyone for that matter, should be revered such that there is no complaint process in existence.
The only course of action against a judges decision, even when demonstrably and admittedly incorrect, is to go through a very expensive legal appeal process to a higher court. This is financially outside most members of the public ability.
