Striking out on SCT


Recommended Posts

Good Evening,

I've got a fairly simple question but I'll provide some context incase needed.

I've pursued a company that has operations in england despite them having no official office anywhere. I've managed to find a site they operate from and the papers there have been defended so I know they operate there.

They've filed a defence which is honestly the worst defence ever, and despite being required to provide their witness evidence, they have not and have completely ignored the courts and my request for copies of it.

I'm therefore considering applying to strike out their defence on the grounds the defence was rubbish and that they haven't provided any evidence for the trial.

However, it has a trial date set for end of june, and a civil application wouldn't get heard until a week before then, so hardly worth it.

However, my local court is very good at dealing with paper applications (i.e ones that don't need hearings, and frankly I think they are literally like 1-2 days from when you submit it to when a Judge sees it.

I'm wondering if I can apply to strikeout a defence without a hearing OR whether a hearing is required for a strikeout application.

 

Thanks

Requires a hearing unless you inform the court within your application you will not be in attendance pursuant to CPR 27.9 (you will still have to pay for a hearing as its an application on notice.

Far better way and cheaper is to push the court to strike out for none compliance of directions as per their Notice of Allocation N157 rather than going for strike out /summary judgment.

We could do with some help from you.

Then leave it just proceed with the claim( strike out/SJ application are risky).....the defendant will not be permitted to rely on written evidence (documented) only verbally as they failed to comply with the N157 (unless they have filed with the court and failed to serve you a copy) ?

Still have to submit a statement either system....if they fail they can only give verbal because they failed to file and serve.

Yea but the annoying this is that they're not based in england so they won't even come.

Just a 2mo delay for no apparent reason.

So if they are not in attendance and can't rely on written evidence then you get an easy judgment without paying out £275.....simples
