Hi there people

 

Does anybody have either a link or information for in which order multitrack documents should be presented in County Court.

 

i.e when oppening the lever arch file, how should it read ?

All that I have found is a very brief two items;

 

First.Court documentation

Second. Evidential bundle

My claim is so much more than that, or am I reading to much into the term "evidential bundle" ?

Questions that I am asking myself

1 Court documentation

1a) Does it relate to everything,

a]Case Management hearing

b]Court Order

c]Notice of Trial Date

d]Allocation to Multi-track

 

2 Evidential bundle

a]A considerable amount of my information is undated, so how do I list that ?

b]Some of my documentation is taken from the public domain, though the date shows that is was taken after the event.

c]Letters between solicitors, do they go in a different section ?

 

Lastly, do I include the skeleton argument before the Court documentation ?

3.2 Unless the court orders otherwise, the trial bundle should include a copy of:

(1) the claim form and all statements of case,

(2) a case summary and/or chronology where appropriate,

(3) requests for further information and responses to the requests,

(4) all witness statements to be relied on as evidence,

(5) any witness summaries,

(6) any notices of intention to rely on hearsay evidence under rule 32.2,

(7) any notices of intention to rely on evidence (such as a plan, photograph etc.) under rule 33.6 which is not—

3.5 The trial bundle should be paginated (continuously) throughout, and indexed with a description of each document and the page number. Where the total number of pages is more than 100, numbered dividers should be placed at intervals between groups of documents.

3.6 The bundle should normally be contained in a ring binder or lever arch file. Where more than one bundle is supplied, they should be clearly distinguishable, for example, by different colours or letters. If there are numerous bundles, a core bundle should be prepared containing the core documents essential to the proceedings, with references to the supplementary documents in the other bundles.

3.7 For convenience, experts' reports may be contained in a separate bundle and cross referenced in the main bundle.

3.8 If a document to be included in the trial bundle is illegible, a typed copy should be included in the bundle next to it, suitably cross-referenced.

3.9 The contents of the trial bundle should be agreed where possible. The parties should also agree where possible:

(1) that the documents contained in the bundle are authentic even if not disclosed under Part 31, and

(2) that documents in the bundle may be treated as evidence of the facts stated in them even if a notice under the Civil Evidence Act 1995 has not been served. Where it is not possible to agree the contents of the bundle, a summary of the points on which the parties are unable to agree should be included.

3.10 The party filing the trial bundle should supply identical bundles to all the parties to the proceedings and for the use of the witnesses.

Kind regards
