Cherbi v Scottish Legal Complaints Commission: SIC 8 Nov 2011

Whether requests vexatious – Mr Cherbi requested from the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission (the SLCC) information relative to compensation payments and hospitality offered. The SLCC responded to the effect that the information requested was intended for publication and relied upon section 27(1)(a)(i) of FOISA.
Following reviews, as a result of which the SLCC informed Mr Cherbi that it considered his requests to be vexatious in terms of section 14(1) of FOISA, Mr Cherbi remained dissatisfied and applied to the Commissioner for a decision.
Following an investigation, during which the SLCC withdrew its reliance upon section 14(1), the Commissioner found that the SLCC had failed to deal with Mr Cherbi’s requests for information in accordance with Part 1 of FOISA, on the basis that Mr Cherbi’s requests were not vexatious in terms of section 14(1).
