Lee Allen v East Midlands Strategic Health Authority, SCCO 18 September 2007

September 2007

This case has shown that contrary to popular opinion a CFA entered after the revocation of the CFA Regulations can be unenforceable.  A CFA was entered before an LSC Funding Certificate had been discharged.  Regulation 64 of the Civil Legal Aid (General) Regulations 1989 prevents the assisted person, solicitor or Counsel from entering into an alternative funding arrangement during the currency of a Certificate and therefore the CFA should not have been entered and was therefore unenforceable.
