Thousands ‘could sue CSA for negligence’

News from Jim Bailey’s site

A SINGLE mother launched a test case at the Court of Appeal yesterday which could see thousands of families suing the Child Support Agency for negligence.

Lawyers warned that if she is successful every family in Britain whose case has not been handled properly could be able to take legal action.

This is the first time the Court of Appeal has been asked to rule on whether the CSA owes a duty of care to the parents and children on whose behalf it collects maintenance.

The case is being heard at a time when the CSA is due to be scrapped. CSA bureaucracy consumes a staggering 70p of every pound collected from absent parents.
