The claimant instructed a firm of legal representatives who submitted the claim on her behalf.   The Tribunal sent the correspondence to the legal representatives relating to her claim and not to the claimant directly.   The correspondence was not acted upon and the case was struck out on the basis of non-compliance.   The claimant appealed that decision to the EAT and subsequently to the Court of Appeal.
