    It is never inevitable that there will be a hearing, especially if this is CEL. Which PPC?

    If and when you have a letter from your local court, that will tell you the date by which to exchange WS and evidence, and sometimes PPCs discontinue at that stage. No hearing is unstoppable/inevitable, you can see this off earlier but do everything required of you, don't be the one to blink!

    Honestly, I do not expect CEL to turn up or proceed with many hearings. I reckon they are trying to flush out people who will panic and pay. They have history for discontinuing just before a hearing (lots of times, last year) and then this year they've been staying cases for a long time, then only now have they been picking up DQ stage.

    I don't believe that means they have changed their stance and fully expect discontinuances later on with all these well-defended cases.

    If CEL have form for late discontinuations, is it worth filing for a counter claim for costs, to force them to turn up / automatically lose?

    Too late to counter claim now, and costs are not a 'counter-claim' in themselves.

    Costs can be claimed by writing a letter to the Judge immediately after discontinuance, so this OP can do that if and when it happens, later.

    The D&Q I sent stated I had to send to court and copy to CEL? So should they send one to me?

    YEs, of course. Ask the court if they got a copy of CELs DQ, and state you have not been served one. Put that in writing to the court
    It goes in as part of how CEL are unreasonable, so you can get more costs under CPR27.14(g)(2).

    Every time they do not adhere to practice directions you should write to the allocated court to make them aware.

    The court then should make a general form of judgement or order telling them to comply with whatever they have not done.

    This then gives you a paper trail to show to the court the unreasonable behaviour of the claimant.

    In my case a couple of years ago, they failed to serve DQ, were late in paying the hearing fee, did not file witness statements. On each occasion I informed the court and the court made the relevant order to the claimant (which they ignored).

    They subsequently discontinued the day before the hearing but 'forgot' to tell me.

    No court had been allocated? Then write to the CCBC.
