Accident Compensation Cases

Booth v Accident Compensation Corporation (DC, 25/08/03)

Judgment Text

DECISION ON THE PAPERS 
Judge P F Barber
[1]
The appellant's solicitor, Andrew Cadenhead, filed a notice of appeal on 21 December 2001 against a decision by a Review Officer as to whether the Corporation had correctly determined that there was no entitlement to an independence allowance. 
[2]
The Registry acknowledged the notice of appeal on 21 December 2001, and wrote seeking submissions on 15 January 2002. Counsel requested an extension of time on 18 January 2002, which was granted. 
[3]
On 19 February 2003 the Registry wrote seeking information about the status of the appeal and was advised by counsel on 3 March 2003 that the matter was not ready for hearing. On 23 July 2003 counsel wrote to seek leave to withdraw, as the appellant had given no further instruction. 
[4]
The Registry wrote directly to the appellant on 28 July 2003 to ascertain the status of the appeal but efforts to make contact have proved unsuccessful. 
[5]
I therefore STRIKE OUT this Appeal for want of prosecution.
