Moratorium on Judicial pension cases

Following a recent decision of the UK Supreme Court in the case of O'Brien v Ministry of Justice (MOJ), Justice Minister David Ford, has written to the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland to put in place a moratorium for the tribunal judiciary sitting in tribunals for which his Department is responsible.

The purpose of the moratorium is to remove the need for potential claimants to lodge a "protective" claim from 1 May 2013.
