LSC Family contracts

As I travel round the country I am picking up news of the firms who have not been given contracts to continue with some or all of their family work and my heart goes out to all those affected. I understand that the net effect of this contract round is that 47% of firms have been refused contracts. The Independent carries a story about Dawson Cornwell being refused the contract to take on forced marriages work. 'Bonkers' as the lady from the Henna Foundation succinctly puts it.

More on the contracts in the Guardian following a Resolution survey

I have heard that someone is judicially reviewing the LSC but am unable to track down any reported cases. Does anyone know of one?
