Thompson v Director of Legal Aid Casework

Legal aid – Refusal of legal aid. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant Director of Legal Aid Casework's decision, refusing her request for exceptional case funding (ECF) to pursue an appeal against the refusal to revoke a deportation order. The conclusion that there would be no breach of art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights if the claimant was not given ECF had not been wrong and she had not crossed the high threshold for a rationality challenge.
