just called West London CC and my "hearing" is still going ahead on Tuesday..... Not sure if this is because i put in an amendement form with my Bundle so my original court date was changed to a hearing to discuss the amended claim.


Really really really hoping that I can try to get the defence struck off with abuse of process order... Here's hoping.

Abbey had until Sunday 12th August to send their bundles, they didn't. I went down to my local county court, who by the way were carrying on as normal, LOL, on Monday, 13th to ask for judgement for abbey's non compliance. Let's just say that I can only hold my breath for a very short time. Reading all the posts on this site, I am quickly losing all faith in the once enviable British judicial system. I can see some time in the future, hooligans, murderers and rapists going into their local BANK for sentencing.

It would be very useful if you could post what your local court has told you regarding stay on claims due to the OFT report. We dont need to know what the banks said, we all know they will just tell us that they have a stay and that is that.

I am Hoping that this list will help in our argument to have stays set aside, by demonstrating to judges that (at the moment) the majority of courts are continuing with claims on a case by case basis, which is a fair and just way to continue.

Remember that if your claim is involving a credit card claim, then it should NOT be stayed, and if it is you should appeal this decision immediatly.

I also hope to raise the awareness a bit, it may give us all a bit of hope if anyone was fearing the banks letters were right saying all cases were stayed when in fact they werent.

We have had letters today from Lancaster that we will have been allocated to the small claims track in a back to back hearing on the 30th November - Not only that the judge has accepted our draft directions and the shAbbey now have 14 days to file their bundle or the defence will be struck out :D

I have against the Shabbey due up on 23rd August and I have just contacted Watford County Court. The news is that there is NOT a stay on my case as yet , however any new cases coming through, the Judge is applying a stay to them . I will update you as soon as I get any other info.

Abbey had until last Sunday to send me their bundle......they didn't, so I fired off a letter to the court asking for them to be struck out for non-compliance. I received a letter this morning thanking me for my letter which has been referred to the district judge for consideration. NO MENTION OF A STAY. Early days I suppose.......wish me luck. It seems that Caernarfon county court are carrying on regardless, for now anyway.

Hey ICY,


our list made the BBC news LOL we are famous!


BBC NEWS | Business | Banks still being sued over fees





The website of the Consumer Action Group (CAG) currently lists more than 30 courts in England and Wales where all cases are being stayed.

Another 28 courts are deciding whether or not to stay claims case-by-case.

But nearly 40 courts appear still to be hearing cases as normal and not applying any stays. In more than 100 other courts, the situation is unclear.

Read it, thats brilliant news, at least it means some people may be reassured that all is not yet lost, Leecabs you deserve the credit for getting this one off the ground.


Good that the press for once are working on our behalf, always good to raise the profile a little

DD2 had a letter today from Northampton County Court ( not MCOL ) together with the Defence & Counterclaim form :

In the defence box of the form Evershed had typed in -

" We intend to defend this claim and will file a full defence within 28 days of the stay of proceedings expiring "


The court letter said:

The file has been referred to the Distric Judge for directions. Please be advised that work is taking in excess of 6 weeks to process."

The defence of the claim should be in on 31st August ( ie 28 days after date of service. So not sure now whether the Judge will grant a stay without them even submitting a defence - what a cop out !!!!! Seems to me that they've actually taken it for granted that they'll get a stay rather than applying for one.

Just a thought........ It seems to me, reading threads on this utterly brilliant site that the banks are sending their cannon fodder into court hearings to apply for stays, even though none of them have complied with court orders in respect of bundles. Am I correct in thinking that abbey and other banks are excempt from complying with court orders? Could someone enlighten me as to how they get away with it?

GaryH posted the following clarification about a week ago:


Depends on the directions - small claims track standard directions then yes, they don't have to submit documents if they don't intend to rely on any at the hearing. If its been ordered that they must submit a certain document(s), such as a disclosure, and they don't then you can ask for a strike out.

All you can do at your hearing, when objecting to a stay, is to refer to points in your own bundle and make it apparent to the judge that the defence have come ill prepared. The sticky posted by GaryH yesterday is very helpful for advice. Read it and re-read it. Make em work for their stays


Abbey Court Hearings - Important info

Just been to Watford County Court for my hearing only to discover that the Judge had ordered a stay yesterday . They had allegedly tried to call me via Directory Enquiries to no avail , but the front cover of my Court bundle gives email/landline and mobile no to contact me .


Really really cross , didnt even get to go inside the court room .


I am awaiting a letter to see whether it was the judge that stayed it or the Abbey applied .
