Age of Elegance v Mrs V Hammond - appeal dismissed for non-attendance  EAT
Mr & Mrs Feely trade as "Age of Elegance". Due to Mr Feely's illness they sought a postponement of the tribunal's hearing of Mrs Hammond's claim against them. This was refused. The Feelys appealed.
The EAT (Mr Recorder Plender QC, rather oddly referring to the EAT as a "Court") ruled, without quoting any authority, that he was "obliged" to dismiss the appeal because neither party turned up. This was so nowithstanding that he considered "submissions to be fairly arguable".
