Ali v United Kingdom (App. No. 40378/10)

Housing – Homeless person. The European Court of Human Rights held that the determination of the applicant's entitlement to accommodation under Pt VII of the Housing Act 1996 had been a determination of a 'civil right' for the purposes of art 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights and the local housing authority's decision that it had discharged its duty to her under Pt VII of the Act had been subject to judicial scrutiny of sufficient scope to satisfy the requirements of art 6(1).
