Blacklisting: Court Date Cancelled

January 31, 2016
  1. High Court hearing set for Monday 1st February has now been cancelled. Its very last minute but the firms only agreed the issues very late.

 

There is now an extension of time for any individual to join the group litigation – 28th Feb 2016 is the new deadline.

If anyone with information on the Consulting Association blacklist that has received their file from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is not part of the High Court claim yet – HURRY UP!! Because once 29th Feb is passed, it will almost certainly be too late.
