Hello

i have a pending action through small claims track (hearing) and have just found out that the defendant's partner sent a text to my witness asking if he had spoken to me recently!

 

this was followed by a few phone calls asking same witness to "just pop up and sign something".

 

All declined by witness.

 

Should I inform the hearing about this?

This isn't a criminal case where the defendant is prohibited from contacting prosecution witnesses.

 

If you can PROVE the defendant is trying

a) to intimidate a witness or,

b) to persuade them to alter a witness statement, then you absolutely should draw it to the court's attention.

Otherwise, it won't affect things, so don't bother.

There is no property in a witness in a civil claim like yours so you can't stop either party contacting a witness.
