    Summary

    The Swedish Social Insurance Agency filed an appeal in a case concerning sickness compensation with the Administrative Court in Stockholm. The Administrative Court initiated proceedings via an exchange of letters. Approximately five months later, the Administrative Court decided to send the case documents to the Administrative Court in Malmö. In its reasoning, the Administrative Court in Stockholm stated that it did not have jurisdiction for the appeal, but the Administrative Court in Malmö did have jurisdiction.

    The Parliamentary Ombudsman directs criticism towards the Administrative Court for having failed in the verification of the court's jurisdiction, which must be performed when a case is received by the court.

    The Parliamentary Ombudsman further states that since the Administrative Court in Stockholm had initiated proceedings in the case, there was no legal basis for handing the case documents over to
    the Administrative Court in Malmö. Instead, the Administrative Court in Stockholm should have dismissed the appeal. The Swedish Social Insurance Agency’s obligation to submit an appeal to the administrative court with jurisdiction would thereby have been re-established. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen directs criticism towards the judge who issued the faulty appeal.
