The Statements of Case have been submitted and exchanged and any comments have to be made by February 4.
But measures have been taken to control exchanges: the Chamber of the Court can therefore "specify the matters of law to which such statements of case or written observations must relate" and "the maximum length of those documents" and the period in which they must be submitted.
Claimants may request and attend personal hearings before a DRO, who will prepare statements of case or supplemental statements of case when unable to revise a decision.
