Judgment Publication Policy September 2013
Please note the contents of the Tribunal’s new Judgment Publication Policy. From 3 September 2013, the Tribunal’s Judgment will be published on the Tribunal’s website notwithstanding the fact that an appeal against the decision has been filed at the Administrative Court. A published Judgment will be endorsed to the effect that it is subject to appeal upon receipt by the Tribunal of notification from either party accompanied by a copy of the Notice of Appeal sealed by the Court. Once the appeal has been decided, the published Judgment will be annotated briefly to note the outcome and the Appeal Judgment reference. Judgments removed from the Tribunal’s website pending appeal under the May 2013 Judgment Publication Policy will remain unpublished until the appeal has been determined.
