Re: Reply to Defence
I don't understand the question.
Why should you respond to the defence? That's what the hearing is for :-?
You issue court summons, they defend themselves in a spurious fashion, and attempt to justify the unjustifiable. Come hearing date (should it ever get that far), unless the judge has ordered to come up with further info, you say why the charges are unlawful, they'll say why they're not, the judge agrees with one or the other, end of story.
You may want to qualify the estimate in the aq to show the judge that it' s not your fault if you can't come up with the correct amount, and that they have a cheek to put you to proof when they won't give you the info in the first place, but that's about it, really.
Just passing through, don't mind me...!
