I made a complaint about my legal advisors to the ombudsman

This answer was rated:

I made a complaint about my legal advisors to the ombudsman and during the course of their investigations it became apparent that my legal advisors failed to take copies of important documents at our initial meeting and therefore returned incorrect advice.
I alerted the ombudsman to the problem and they refused to accept that the missing documents had any bearing on their decisions.
I made a second complaint under a different heading, failure to identify my objectives and failure to pass important documents to the barrister for correct advice, and the ombudsman has this time refused to investigate stating the outcome would be the same.
it is clear to me that they do not want to accept that it was their office who alerted me to the missing documents and have twisted everything unfairly and irrationally against me so my question is, what parts of the human rights act do I need to include in the claim form for judicial review?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Judicially review who please?

Judicially review the Ombudsman's decision. I thought that would be obvious.

It would be under Article 6.

If you want to consider a Judicial Review you should also read this guidance:

But to answer your question, its Article 6

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is nothing in article 6 that deals with unfairness, irrationality, or unlawfulness of any public body.

You asked what part of the Human Rights Act do you need - that is Article 6.

You are getting confused with Wednesbury undreasonabless which is a totally different matter.

That is not the Human Rights Act - which is what your question was.

Does that clarify? Alex

ok, let me ask you the question this way. Is the Ombudsman breaching any part of my human rights by intentionally blocking my route to a positive outcome from their office? it was their office which sent me the evidence bundle they received from my legal advisors and that is when I realised my legal advisors were missing a very important document. Since then the ombudsman has twisted themselves into a knot to cover up that fact and are refusing to investigate the second lot of complaints.

If it is intentional the yes. You really do need to teach them a lesson and blow this cover up wide open.

They should not abuse their power nor be allowed to get away with it,

Does that claorfy? Alex

it is intentional and I can prove it but back to my original question what article of the human rights act are they breaching.

My question remains, article 6.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you be more specific. Is the right to a fair trial the same as the right to being treated fairly by a public body.

No, that is different. You have been denied the right because of the ombudsman decision. They have prevented your right to justice.

Does that clairfy? Alex
