The applicant sought permission to apply for judicial review of a couty court judge’s decision refusing her leave to appeal from a deputy district judge. She had also requested that certain judge’s should not hear her case.
Held: The claim was undoubtedly hopeless, without merit and is going to go nowhere. The system in the County Court provides for appeals and it is only in the most exceptional case that judicial review will be considered an appropriate remedy where the County Court has dealt with a case and a judge in the County Court has refused leave to appeal. Because of the absence iof the claimant, the court allowed permission for the claimant to apply within fourteen days for leave to have the matter reheard.
