I haven't started any court case yet but have gone down the financial hardship route. I'm borderline-screwed until my next student loan installment in the new year unless I take out a £100 hardship loan from the Uni. I've got a response to my second complaint letter telling me to fill in an income & expenditure form and ring them.
