CN (claimant/appellant) -v- The Secretary of State for Health & Social Care & anr
Tuesday 25 January 2022
Appeal against the Order of Stacey J (22/4/21) that refused an application for permission to apply for judicial review.
The Appellant sought to challenge his non-inclusion in the English Infected Blood Support Scheme (EIBSS) and the failure to expand that scheme to include victims of chronic Hepatitis B virus by way of judicial review on three grounds. Firstly, discrimination contrary to Article 14 combined with Article 8 and Article 1 Protocol 1 (A1P1) concerning property rights; secondly, s.15 of the Equality Act 2010, discrimination arising from disability and, thirdly, unreasonableness.
