Lord Justice Richards:
"The EAT judge, like the Registrar, applied the appropriate principles in exercising of his discretion as to whether to extend time. He was entitled to conclude that no good reason for an extension had been shown. He patently took account of the applicant's dyslexia (see para 7 of the judgment). The time taken by the applicant's solicitors provided no good excuse for the reasons given by the judge and the Registrar, especially bearing in mind the applicant's experience of ET and EAT procedures. There is no realistic prospect of showing that the decision fell outside the scope of the discretion vested in the judge."
