CategoryNews Author Lisa Giovannetti QC Date

Lisa Giovannetti QC and Jonathan Auburn were successful in a challenge to the government’s delays in administering their new major benefit called “Personal Independence Payments” (PIPs), which will completely replace the DLA. The finding from the court was that the government had acted unlawfully by its gross delays in deciding cases.

The Government sought permission to appeal but that was refused.  Lisa and Jonathan were also successful in having the majority of costs awarded.
