Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50086696
  • Date: 23 December 2008
  • Public Authority: University of Northampton
  • Summary: The complainant submitted a number of requests to the public authority from March 2005 to September 2005. In September 2005 the public authority refused to answer any further requests from the complainant on the basis that the requests were vexatious. During the investigation the complainant limited his complaint to requests about 9 outstanding items. The Commissioner has considered whether the University responded to 8 of those requests in accordance with Part I of the Act. The other item is dealt with in the other matters section of this decision. He has concluded that items 1 to 5, 8 and 9 are the complainant’s personal data and therefore are exempt under section 40(1) and (5). He has concluded that item 7 is not held by the University. The Commissioner has also concluded that the University breached sections 17(1)(a), (b) and (c), (5) and (7)(a) in relation to different aspects of the 8 outstanding requests. Information Tribunal appeal EA/2009/0008 has been withdrawn.
