Judgment keywords

Keywords

costs for internal appeal procedure; complaint dismissed

Consideration 8

Extract:

It is well settled in the case law that the Tribunal will only set aside a discretionary decision if it was taken without authority, or if it was tainted with a procedural or formal flaw or based on a mistake of fact or of law, or if essential facts were overlooked, or if there was abuse of authority, or if clearly mistaken conclusions were drawn from the evidence (see, for example, Judgments 1969, consideration 7, 2896, consideration 7, and 3317, consideration 5). Thus, to successfully impugn a discretionary decision, a complainant must demonstrate a fundamental flaw in the decision-making process.
