Last week, I had a small claims court case, the details of which isn't really important as my question is about the judge.

 

I lost the case, but it seems to me that the judge was having a bad day and he took it out on me!

 

The person who had taken me to court had included all fees and the income loss for the day were included in the total amount that he claiming against me.

But at the end the judge decided to add the fees and the another £95 on top of what he was claiming again, and almost doubled the amount that I have to pay now.

 

I tried to explain to him that he was making an error but he wasn't hearing me and threatened to kick me out of the room.

Does that seem normal?

 

Is there a way to make a complaint about this judge and maybe get another hearing?

I feel that the decision was really unfair, and his general attitude towards me was really dismissive and disdainful.

 

Just to clarify, the following is the details of the break down of the claim:

£90 refund for the service that he has paid for

£60 filling fee

£80 hearing fee

£20 travel costs

£350 income loss for attending court on the day

 

Total £600

 

After deciding in his favour and awarding the full amount claimed, the judge added the following on top of the amount claimed:

£60 filling fee

£80 hearing fee

£95 income loss

 

Resulting in the amount of the claim going up to £835

Well it certainly doesn't sound right but your only remedy is to appeal – assuming that if you ask the claimant nicely, he will refuse to see the injustice of it and refuse to forego part of the judgement sum

Am I correct to think that the appealing the judgement will cost £1199? I think that's huge burden to put on anyone, especially in cases like mine where there's an obvious error.

No, is that meant to be sent out by post, or was it meant to be given to me after the judgement?

What obvious error?

 

What I’m not sure of is if “obvious error” means a mistake of fact and / or law, which is clearly demonstrable, or if

“Obvious error” instead means “I lost, so there must have been an error”.

 

In an adversarial system, at least one side always loses, and I suspect GM has seen their fair share of people who have lost, and concluded on losing that an error MUST have been made......
