  1. Just a note for those who now make application to the county court . The county court fees have been hiked up since my application. in my opinion to take civil action is becoming a rich persons sport
  2. Ploddertom Yes the letter came but out of time, but better late than never.and the issue is resolved. I missed the postman and as it was signed for I have yet to collect it and sight it but if it is the same as the PDF version it will be satisfactory for my needs. Ganymede I started the application off with Form N244, it gives you four options of how you want your case to be heard. I wrote to the defendant suggesting one hour for the hearing but they did not revert ( the fee for that application would be £155.00), so I wrote again to the defendant re it being decided by
  3. Legalistc I made one correct application to the court.(N244) It is cheaper to start an action in the County Court and trust they can resolve it.prior to escalation to a superior court . I requested my application be heard without either parties being present as I had written to the defendant to ask if they agreed with the court time lines and they failed to revert. I advised the court and requested it be resolved by a Judge, for which at the time the fee was £50. It was at the request of the Judge both parties attended a hearing. I was summoned to London on the day of the court
  4. Ganymede You are correct Legalistic is incorrect the application was only dismissed on the terms agreed by the defendants solicitor and myself overseen by the Judge Some 18 months ago I purchased some items from a company. I never checked my bill I just put the receipt in my trouser pocket with the change,several days later my wife emptied my trouser pockets and checked the receipt she commented on the price of one item and it was clear I had been overcharged. I did not return straight away as I had used this company for many years. When I went back a few days later I asked
  5. Yes, on behalf of the defendant they claim the solicitor was a self employed working in the South Eastern circuit and since the case they no longer instruct that person The company I am in dispute with claims their representative was an advocate but this has many meanings,. they were not a member of the Bar nor were they registered with the SRA and checking with inner temple or the great inns in London showed no registration with them, nor any any pupillage granted to this person. I have also notified the offending company that the time for them to comply was about (now
  6. I am sorry if I caused offence and had no intention of being derogatory. I am on a state pension and can not afford professional counsel, since the Government withdrew what in my day was green form or legal aid for civil actions. I am on this site to seek help from people who have gone through or had experience of these matters, if their reply is right or wrong it gives me another avenue to pursue. The Judge was fair and honourable and I could ask no more, however if one can disobey the court than the ministry of justice rules play no part in society and not fit for purpose, and we will
  7. There are two types of contempt of court: criminal contempt and civil contempt Civil contempt often involves the failure of someone to comply with a court order. Judges use civil contempt sanctions to coerce such a person into complying with a court order the person has violated.
  8. Yes the solicitor agreed the terms of the order. This is a civil matter not criminal under CPR guidelines and practices the penalty for indirect contempt applies to criminal and civil courts and a county court judge seems to have the power to order sanctions against a company or director, I read somewhere up to two years in prison and or unlimited fine. I do not see why it should be referred to a criminal court. however there is a lot to wade through in CPR part 3 and a lot I am unsure of.
  9. Steampowered The defendent an I agreed with the Judges resolution that if the company retracted their accusation in writing and I made no further applications the matter could be put to bed). Upon hearing the claiment in person and hearing the solicitor for the defence. IT IS ORDERED THAT 1) the application be dismissed 2) The resopndant do write to the applicant by 10 am on the 11 June withdrawing the accusation in its entirety. 3) The applicant will make no further application in relation to the accusation or incident of 28 September 2013 4) There be no
  10. This is not to do with family or money. I took a company to court over defamation. I wrote to the company over 18 months requesting a SAR as the incident was recorded on cctv but they failed to provide it even though all the conditions laid down by the ICO were met. All I got was excuse after excuse. I contacted the ICO and they agreed I had met their criteria but the data controller had the last say. I had letters from the company to say they had identified me. The final straw was when I was asked to take my passport into their head office some 200 miles
