Newbie thread read. Appealed and it was rejected (I know). It's been going on 4 years and now have a court date. Counterclaimed harassment due to several instances where drivers details were given but continue to go after keeper. 

The defence is that driver details have already been given on more than one occasion. Craftily the appeals process is through the claimants online platform and no definitive proof. Email of rejection of appeal in possession - is this enough? 

1. Should driver also come to court (they are happy to) or is it a separate case now?
2. Should case be built to defend initial issuing of PCN by driver? Driver has valid ticket (still to this day) - is this enough?
3. How detailed should witness statements be e.g. include laws / defense or leave this for a separate defence statement? 

Also the defence template has lots of information on excess charges, but my case is more that I wasn't the driver and this information has already been surrendered. Is this sufficient?  

Help and reassurance appreciated greatly.
