Al-Mehdawi v Secretary of State for the Home Department 
- A solicitor failed to communicate a letter telling Al-Mehdawi the date of a court hearing, so he failed to attend court (old address)
- Could the decision made in Al-Mehdawi’s absence be quashed due to a lack of a defence
- No, decision of the court upheld
- It is not the fault of the court if there is no attendance
