DWP just admitted a court case it lost will affect thousands of people

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) just admitted that a court case it lost means it may have to pay thousands of benefit claimants back-payments.
The DWP: wrong again

On 28 June, minister of state for employment Alok Sharma was forced to reveal the outcome of a legal challenge to the DWP. As the Mirror reported, the court ruled that the coalition government’s changes to regulations about Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) breached the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
