What: The family of Errol Graham win the right to have DWP’s safeguarding policies examined by the high court, through a judicial review of DWP’s failure – dating back more than a decade – to ensure the safety of disabled people claiming ESA. Mr Justice Morris rules that a two-day hearing can go ahead.
Why significant: This will be a high-profile legal challenge of DWP and its historic safeguarding failings. (The hearing will be held on 13 January 2021).
