Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50170171
  • Date: 9 August 2007
  • Public Authority: Dr A R Daitz
  • Summary: The complainant submitted a request to a GP (who, for the purposes of the Act is considered to be a public authority in his own right). The GP refused to answer this request on the basis that it was vexatious. Having considered the evidence in this case, the Commissioner is satisfied that the request was vexatious because, when taken in the context of the complainant’s previous correspondence and other actions, this request imposed a significant burden on the GP and also had the effect of harassing him. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
