Mental health tender criteria ‘discriminate against smaller firms’

first_imgA London firm is poised to challenge the Legal Services Commission’s mental health tender process by claiming that it discriminates against smaller firms, as the Law Society’s action over the family contract commences in the Divisional Court today. The firm, which did not want to be identified, has issued but not yet served proceedings claiming the LSC’s tendering process for the award of contracts to represent mental health patients detained in special hospitals breached the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended in 2009). The tender criteria meant that, to be awarded a contract, firms had to show they had had 100 or more clients in a special hospital over a defined one-year period. The firm, which failed to get a contract for special hospital work, claims that in using this threshold, the bid process and result were unfairly biased in favour of larger firms, and the LSC failed in its statutory duty to treat competing legal providers ‘equally and in a non-discriminatory way’. Meanwhile, the Law Society’s judicial review of the family tender process, adjourned by the Administrative Court earlier this week, will be heard today in the Divisional Court. At a hearing on Tuesday, Mr Justice Beatson adjourned the case after his fellow judge, Mr Justice Munby, disqualified himself due to a conflict of interest. Beatson will hear the case with Lord Justice Moses. At Tuesday’s hearing, the National Youth Advocacy Service was given permission to intervene in the Law Society’s case. A group representing around 70 firms, led by Derek Reynolds at the Children and Families Law Firm, had already been given permission to intervene. It has also served separate judicial review proceedings. Three other groups sought permission to join the Law Society’s action, but were advised to file their own cases and seek to have them linked to Reynolds’ case. No date was given for judgment in the main Law Society action, but it is expected some time next week.last_img read more

Ostapenko explains what prevented the fight for a better result

first_imgIt has already been reported that Ostapenko tennis center “Tondi” on Wednesday lost 3-6, 4-6 to Estonian Kaija Kanepi. Ostapenko alternated successful episodes with unsuccessful ones, and she repeatedly challenged the judge’s decisions.“It can happen to make mistakes in a few moments, but it can’t be that in many decisive and controversial moments the referee gives an end to the Estonian. It was not pleasant because I started playing normally, but after those moments it was difficult to return to the game. calming down told the tennis player. Ostapenko admitted that Kanepi served very well, especially the Estonian’s first serve was hard to beat.“I knew she served well because we had already played with each other. In addition, she played at home, and it is much easier to serve indoors because there is no wind and sun,” said Ostapenko. “Maybe at some point I tried to serve so that I hit 100% instead of taking risks. However, it’s a friendly game that I use more than training. It’s hard to draw conclusions because I haven’t played in high-level matches for a long time.”Ostapenko did not hide that too much of his emotions diverted to where it was not necessary.“I don’t like losing in tennis or any other sport. I will always fight to the end. I was very unhappy with the referee and of course there were a lot of emotions that prevented me from getting a better result in the second set. It seems to me that the level we play should not be “I’m a very emotional person and I can’t keep everything to myself, because then it will be even harder for me to play. Of course I’m working on it. I think people who are emotional will understand me,” Ostapenko explained.The tennis players tried to reassure her mother Jelena Yakovlev and the always weighed team captain Dennis Pavlov.“I’ve known Denis for a very long time, I used to train with him. He was a calm person all the time, sometimes surprisingly balanced. He tried to get me back in the game and calm me down. But in such moments it’s hard to calm me down, because I’m like a volcano and the fire goes through the air, “explained Ostapenko.She hoped the tournament would take place on clay, but was later moved indoors to hard courts.“At first it was said that we would play on hard surface in a completely different arena. Then it was said that we would play on clay. I trained on clay and I was happy because I don’t like hard surface lately. But two days before the games it was announced that we would play on hard surface. rather than clay. Honestly, the mood was very bad, “Ostapenko revealed.On Thursday, she will play alone with Aneta Kontaveit, currently the leading tennis player in the Baltics, who defeated Anastasia Sevastova on Wednesday.“It seems to me that it will be a completely different match than today. Anete plays steadily, but does not serve as strongly as today’s opponent, so there will be much more time to prepare for the serve. She likes aggressive play. Today was not easy, because Kanepi served in places from cannabis is a little faster both in blows and serve, but it will also be a difficult game, “opponents compared Ostapenko.She and Sevastova trained in Liepaja, but were not specially prepared for the doubles scheduled for Thursday.“We just trained for singles, we didn’t even play for points. We trained to get in the rhythm and play as long as possible,” Ostapenko said.After five games, the Latvian national team is in the lead with 3-2.The tournament will have a total of 11 games – eight singles and three doubles, one of which will be a mixed doubles.The Latvian national team includes Alona Ostapenko (WTA 41st), Anastasija Sevastova (WTA 43rd), Ernests Gulbis (ATP 162) and Kārlis Ozoliņš (ATP 1133., ITF Jun. 6). This year, this quartet was at the core of the Latvian national team in the Federation Cup and Davis Cup matches.Estonia is represented by the strongest missiles of the northern neighbors Anete Kontaveita (WTA 22), Kaija Kanepi (WTA 99), Jürgen Zops (ATP 540) and Vladimir Ivanov (ATP 738).The professional tennis season will resume in August, but until then, tennis players will participate in various demonstration tournaments.Others are currently reading Fake beauty: behind the perfect photos lies the truth A Spanish magazine will despise talking about the appearance of a 16-year-old Dutch princess Madeleine’s disappearance: investigators find a hidden basement in the place where the suspect used to livelast_img read more
