    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask.

    Anyone?
    Its been over a month since I sent off that last letter and have not had a reply.
    Are they likely waiting for a court date to be set and are they likely to respond then or what?

    Its my guess that they are waiting for me to break but actually I am quite looking forward to the challenge and reckon the judge will be rather annoyed that they have let this go all the way, if they do.

    What is their norm procedure having replied within a week to my first letter?

    Remind us, is this allocated to your local court yet?

    If so, ring them and ask if the Claimant has discontinued or have they paid the hearing fee, have you missed any court letter or is there just a delay?

    When was it allocated to your local court/ That doesnt take too long usually, to get a hearing date sent. Could be worth giving them a call to make sure post hasnt gone missing.

    As for the letter you sent, good chance that is on the "too difficult to anser" pile. Of course, when you write your WS - you could do that now! - you will reference that you continued to attempt to resolve the dispute, and corrected them on their numerous misunderstandings of their own associations CoP, yet received no response. This is contrary to their requirements to attempt to reoslve the dispute without taking up courts time.

    Thanks for the reply Nos.
    Case was allocated to court a couple of mths back but perhaps there are a lot of cases to be heard.

    Great suggestion re the WS, although they did reply to the first letter sent, offering £60 settlement and I again told them I that I dont intend paying as there is no case to answer Etc.

    Would they not have come back on that normally?

    Might they be waiting on a court date before replying?

    Send it to them again with a chaser. Point out that their failure to engage will be relied upon when it comes to costs.


    But first of all, chase the court up as well, normally when it's been transferred you very quickly receive an order confirming the allocation to small track, a date for a final hearing and setting out the timetable for exchange of evidence etc. If you haven't received anything, how do you know it's been transferred?

    YEs, there might be a lot - bu tthere may not be. Hence why you need to call the court
    Now

    You dont want to find out the hearing is next week and youre late filing your WS, do you!

    You can certainly give medical grounds. I imagine youd need a signed statement saying youc an act on her behalf.
