In Anderson v Hilton International UK a firm of Solicitors who left filing a form 3 (response to appeal at the EAT) to the last day and later found out that their fax machine had only sent the first page succeeded in securing a retrospective time extension of one day.

The firm thought that the fax had sent, but received a failure notification the next day and resent the form 3 that day.

Once again the Judgment mentions that the EAT’s close of business is earlier than that of many businesses, which means any time sensitive documents must be received by the EAT in full by 4pm as reported here.
