Complaint about the failure to act of the authority to the Provincial Administrative Court
A complaint about the inactivity of a given institution should not be lodged directly with the Provincial Administrative Court, but through the institutuion whose lack of activity is the subject of the complaint. The complaint is directed if, despite an earlier reminder, the proceedings are still pending. It is worth noting that the opportunity to lodge a complaint about the inaction of the authority to the Provincial Administrative Court is standardized by the Code of Administrative Procedure.
The institution whose proceedings are being contested has 30 days to take into account the content of the complaint. If the case is extremely complicated, this time is significantly extended – up to 60 days. The authority should provide information whether there has actually been a lack of administrative action or whether specific activities have been carried out for too long. The Voivodeship Administrative Court may, at the request of one of the parties to the proceedings or directly from the office, issue a verdict imposing a fine on a public institution.
