Humana announced on 31 januari 2023 that IVO had decided to revoke Humana Assistans's permit to conduct operations. On 2 February 2023, Humana announced that Humana Assistans had appealed the decision to the Administrative Court in Stockholm and filed a request for suspension.

Today, the Administrative Court has decided to grant suspension of IVO's decision since the Administrative Court  [considers that the outcome of the case currently is uncertain and that no strong opposing interest has emerged against Humana Assistans being allowed to conduct its activities while waiting for  the Administrative Court to finally decide the case. The Administrative Court also states that it has taken into account in particular that it has not been found that person who's assistance is carried out by Humana are at risk at being harmed if the operations are allowed to continue. IVO has the possibility to appeal the Administrative Court's decision on suspension no later than 28 February 2023.

Humana Assistans still consider IVO's decision incorrect, for reasons including those stated in Humana's press release on 2 February 2023.  The company will continue to work for safe and secure personal assistance for all customers while continuing to pursue the case in court. Humana do currently not know how long it will take for the Administrative Court to finally decide the case.
