Thank you Andy for the reply. I see, so do you think what ive wrote is suitable for a supplimental witness statement?

 

If so do i need to hand the judge and the claimant a copy before the trial starts or do i just keep it to myself until I need to answer anything?

The contents appear to be in response and further to having received their WS after you submitted yours......so therefore its should be a SWS...which you submit not less than 4 days before the hearing.


We could do with some help from you.

Of course plenty of time...and if its not already in your main witness statement then essential.

You need to format it into a Skeleton Argument first and amend point 9 ...its not another defence its additional information since receiving the claimants witness statement late.

 

9 Should read something along the lines of " Its respectfully requested that the above is accepted and taken into consideration due to the claimants failing to comply with the courts directions dated xxxxx in that they failed to disclose their evidence and witness statement by the dates stated and therefore disadvantaged my position in defending this claim.I request the court impose sanctions pursuant to CPR 3.4 (2c)

 

Yes it will be fine to hand deliver...dont forget to serve a copy on the claimant (Email)

Thank you Andy, im more confused than ever now. So if im understanding this, what ive wrote above is a supplimental witness statement which i don't need to write?

 

I will go and read through threads about skeleton arguments as no idea how to set one out.

I have been reading and looking at skeleton statements, and being honest i don't know where to start.

 

Regarding my supplimental ws above could i just change the title to skeleton statement and use that?

 

Any advice please.

Ive had a go could you please check this over Thankyou.

 

As the defendant of this case, i wish to respectfully make this skeleton statement.

° it is stated from the claimant that i have an agreement with shop direct and all products were delivered to my address.

 

I formally requested a cca from shop direct under sections 77-78 of the cca 1974.

Shop direct failed to send me a cca so i put this account in dispute.

 

° it is stated from the claimant that the products were ordered on 30/12/10 amounting to £750. I have no knowledge of ordering these said products and the claimant has not provided proof of how it was myself who ordered them.

 

° The claimant States the last payment received on this account was 30th may 2009.

According to the limitation act 1980 it states that the limitation period for simple contract debts is 6 years if noone has made a payment towards the debt and have not written to the creditor admitting you owe the debt..

 

° I do not recall being issued a default notice pursuant to the cca 1974 and the claimant has not provided the documentation regarding this.

 

° The claimant States in their ws that they contacted shop direct who confirmed they had no records of myself ever raising a dispute, requesting evidence or making a formal request under the cca 1974.

 

My evidence in exhibits b, c, and d contradict this, as do the claimants own evidence (ak3).

 

° The credit agreement would also be pre 2007 and the requirements for such agreements are not being adhere to by the claimant.

 

 

° it is respectfully requested that the above is accepted and taken into consideration due to the claimants failure to supply myself and the court their witnesses statement and evidence as stated in the court directions dated 5th January 2017, therefore disadvantging my position in defending this claim i request that the court impose sanctions pursuant to cpr34 (2c)

 

 

Does this all sound ok any feedback please .

I am by no means an expert, in fact quite the opposite but my case was dismissed last week, it was dismissed based on my skeleton argument in 5 minutes, and you advice is quote the law itself, especially relating to defaults, the judge read the quotes from the paperwork and used that. She didn't know ow what a default notice was so it's worth spelling it out to them. Does that make sense?

Your initial post masie indicated to me that you wished to respond to their late Witness Statement with further response...if that is the case then its a supplemental witness statement.

 

If you dont then then its a skeleton argument...and that should just contain the bullet points of your defence and existing witness statement...no additional further points..argument or evidence.

 

So which do you wish to submit?

 

Andy

Thank you for your reply tulip, i did read your thread and got a good insight of what i need to be doing.

 

It is just really hard to take all this in when you've never had to do anything like this.

 

Well done on beating them, they are vermin.

Yes its fine...just add the court headers...Claimant V Defendant..... County Court..... claim number etc....it does not require a statement of truth....unlike a witness statement.

Yes, i read tulips problems with it, im thinking off taking it to court tomorrow and sending the claimant it on Wednesday recorded delivery.

 

Or could I take the courts one tomorrow and give the claimant theres on Friday then the judge already has it beforehand? Is that legal to do?

Well they could moan that you have ambushed them on the day and that they have not had time to consider...which in reality they dont need time for a Skeleton as its only a summary and bullet poinst of what they have already received....nothing new.

 

A Skeleton argument is basically a running list of the main points you consider are the main fighting points that you will use..the skeleton is for you to have infront of you at the hearing so that you can readily bring up each point.

Ive took skeleton argument to the court yesterday had to put it in a drop off area outside the building.

 

I emailed the claimant solicitor a copy and got a response email having to give other details full name and address etc, then it said it make take 5 working days to look at your email as we are very busy with emails,then went on to telephone them instead.

 

Now im not going to phone them, what if they get to court and say we haven't received any argument etc, do i take a copy of the email i sent as proof?
