Hi,

I recently attended the High Court as a defendant,

in a civil case concerning a restraining order which was taken out against me nearly a year ago, ,

 

I was innocent of the companies claims of intimidation etc.

but lost the case as I had no money and had to represent myself as (Litigant in person)

was up against a legal team of two solicitors, and a barrister.

 

the outcome was not as bad as I had expected,

and several critiscisms of the claimants behaviour were made by the judge,

 

but the restraining order was kept in place for a further six months,

and the were awarded 50% of their legal costs,

which we do not know what they amount to yet,

but they were also awarded an "Interim payment"

which has apparently,

to be paid within 14 days. and which I do not have.

 

My questions are:

 

1. What are the implications of non payment?

 

2. How do I challenge their final legal costs? as I can imagine that they will pile them on, as, their sole objectives are my financial ruin and subsequent demise.

 

I have only a couple of days left in which to make this payment, your advice would be much appreciated.

 

John Henry.

Its the claimants responsibility to inform you of their costs and make request.If you disagree with their final costs then simply state that in writing with your points of dispute.

Have they been awarded fixed costs or assessed costs?

Hi Andy, I believe the costs are to be assessed, but I would like to know if there is an appeal process relating to legal costs, and who makes the final decision?

First question ...have they been awarded an Interim Costs Order? Their normal costs will be decided at the end of the trial and again that is subject to their conduct throughout the trial.As already stated if you do not agree with their costs you will be allowed to submit points of dispute until a figure is agreed that is acceptable to both parties.

 

Have you been served with the N252?
