Unexpected ESA tribunal success

Unexpected ESA tribunal success was created by Sooz
MR basically said No to absolutely everything, so I knew I had to appeal, but it was so terrifying I very nearly gave up on it. On the day of doom I got as much paperwork as I could find and got ready to leave, and I got a phone call just as I was leaving, from the clerk to the court, saying that the judge had gone over my notes in preparation for the tribunal and immediately decided I should never have been moved out of the Support Group, on the basis of rule 38 or something (haven't got the letter to hand, sorry), and therefore I didn't need to attend the tribunal at all! I nearly had heart failure on the spot! Just goes to show, the judge and tribunal doctor really ARE completely neutral. I am so relieved, I wanted to share this with you all, sometimes even when you have very little confidence that you will qualify you just never know

That's terrific news and even better that you did not have to attend, well done.

By the sound of it you qualified under Regulation 35 which is one of the Substantial Risk Regs.
