Ministry of Justice (Decision Notice) FS50498555: ICO 20 Feb 2014

ICO The complainant has requested the Statements of Case for a particular litigation case. Having originally found the requested information to be exempt under sections 44(1) (statutory bar) and 32(1) (court record), the public authority instead relied on section 12(2) (cost limit) to refuse the request. The Commissioner’s decision is that the public authority has provided a reasonable estimate of the costs associated with complying with the request and has therefore correctly applied section 12. No steps are required.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 12 – Complaint Not upheld
