A review of this case as reported on the board mailinglist led to the following remarks posted by claimant C1a on 2016-08-24. For brevity, only the relevant part of that entire mail is included here.

[full quote of dispute]


The CoI of the SW TL was with the TL at that time being Board 2014/2015.
As Board had to be respondent (as they are required by SP) to compile
the list, they have to be held accountable for compiling it, even if
they delegate this work.

R1 has to be pulled into this case for failing to complete the assigned
task despite proclaiming otherwise; thus violating the trust that other
members could place into this member regarding reliability and handling
of personal information.

Should this case be dropped or not be handled by 1st December 2016, a
notification to OFT will be sent.

DRO decision to decline arbitration case a20150725.1

On 2016-11-19 the DRO declined case a20150725.1 with m20161119.3:

Decline arbitration case a20150725.1 as DRO

Resolved, that case is a20150725.1 is declined, as per DRP 1.5.  In making
this assessment, board acting as DRO notes the following.

incorporated into the case file.

1. That, there is an active case a20150725.2 over the main topic.

2. That, the case is misfiled, as a. no remedy is requested, and b. the
cause or complaint is not clear.  Especially the words “Please
investigate why…” indicate that this is a team grumble, and the
Arbitration forum is neither an investigative service nor a way to attack
other teams.

3.  The closing remarks “Should this case be dropped or not be handled
by 1st December 2016, a notification to OFT will be sent” are tantamount
to a threat, and by going over the top of the Arbitration forum, place the
claimants in breach of CCA.

4. This case was filed into private part which should be reversed. 
Everyone is to be reminded that the privacy possibilities of case
management should be reserved for cases where there is a need for privacy. 
This case is to be made open.
