How is an action for failure to act against the authorities carried out?


You can bring an action against the authorities for their failure to act to the court if no decision has been taken on the asylum application by the authorities after more than three months. The lawsuit has to be filed with the competent administrative court. If the action proves successful, the authorities have to set a date for the hearing and decide on the request much quicker.
