Cohens took me to court in December 2008, I applied for a stay and entered a defence. I heard nothing until June 2009 when I got a General Directions Order from the court stating that

"The application to lift the stay and enter Judgement is Refused". " The wording of the application is ungrammatical and therefore nonsensical, and there being no statement of truth to Part C of the Application. This is not acceptable from a firm of solicitors"

Again I heard nothing until a month ago when I got a letter from Cohens saying they would take me to court unless, etc. I did nothing! Got the new court papers from Northampton approx 2 weeks ago. Can they start a new case? Is there any defence due to Judgement being refused in the earlier case?

No, they can’t do this if the case is based on essentially the same facts as previously.


The only thing they could do is reapply to lift the stay, as the original claim appears not to have been struck out.


I’m guessing CL bought the debt. Can you provide more background?

“The industry is rotten to the core, whether it is in-house recovery and collection, or where agents are used, or where the debt has been sold.” Andrew Mackinley MP, House of Commons, 22 April 2009
