X County Council v Local Government Ombudsman

13 Sep 2019

Local Government

Lisa is acted for a County Council in a long-running dispute dispute between the Council and the LGO concerning the LGO’s draft finding that the Council was “at fault” in failing to provide care services to a severely disabled child, and award of a sum of £8000 in respect of this to the child. The Council’s position was that the LGO, in reaching that finding, acted irrationally and contrary to his own guidance.
