R (on the application of F) v London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

Housing – Homeless person. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local authority's refusal to provide her with accommodation, interim relief and an order compelling the authority to carry out a child in need assessment of her son. The Administrative Court held that the final merits of the claim could not be determined and it was transferred to a High Court judge, who was also nominated to sit in the Family Division, so that a case management hearing could take place as soon as possible.
