    so, this is the reply ive sent..........thank you for your email which i acknowledge,

    However, Unless you have decided to drop these ludicrous charges and save us all the embarrassment of court I feel that I cannot correspond further as the matter is now in the hands of your solicitors.

    Kind regards

    Maybe email back referring again to the fact that this is now in the hands of their solicitor.

    Ask them to email over their Notice of Discontinuance by the end of today as tomorrow you will be sending over your schedule of costs.
    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

    Send them that costs schedule though, 24 hours before the hearing, and file it with the court. Take with you evidence that you have sent the costs schedule to them and when.

    Well they can ask ? The moment they have your phone number,
    the harassment will probably begin.

    Play the game ... email ping-pong

    Don't believe for one moment that they will dismiss the case.
    These people are only after money

    so heres my reply...............
    'thank you for your email.

    I am hesitant to open up dialogue as this is now in the hands of your solicitors. If, however you are cancelling the charges and court appearance could you email me a Notice of Discontinuance by the end of today or will be issuing a schedule of costs.

    Yours faithfully,

    Debra'

    so, no other emails. in a local court today a minster baywatch case was thrown out of court due to a technicality when her solicitor stated that they were late petitioning a 'bundle ' to the court! I dont know what this is and dont know how to check if it's a fact in my case too! anyway, good news for the defendant who also had an empathetic judge by the sound of it. he told he claimant that he didnt want to see them again! im hoping it will happen to me!

    The claimant needs to file their court bundle (evidence) by a certain date, the same as you do. PPC solicitors are often late in filing. If they haven't filed by the stated date then you could use the same argument (at the hearing / in your skeleton argument that you can create and file 3-4 days before the hearing).

    just researched the legal height requirement for registration machines is 1200cms, this machine is higher than that and therefore not acceptable for wheelchair users, this strengthens my deference i guess.

    Another poster has just posted that she won in court today, and now you have *won* too!

    If you are out of pocket by any money, you could try an immediate letter to the Judge asking for your costs (there's a version written by LoadsofChildren123 that deals with how to word it).

    really glad to hear it

    just shows you that fronting it out and not falling into their intimidation traps paid off

    definitely try and claim any costs involved as CM says , these people have made life hell for you and your "witness" for some time now

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se
