    Horizon Parking Hearing Tommorow- No information received from the other side

    Horizon Parking Hearing Tommorow- No information received from the other side 11th Jan 18 at 3:34 PM
    Hi All,

    A couple of months ago I successfully defended a claim against Horizon Parking/Gladstones Solicitors, in which the Judge found in my favor due to various holes in their defense including evidence of a robo claim, no evidence the maps they included in their witness statement related to the parking site in question, and further no contract being formed between the driver and them.

    I am in court tomorrow for another claim against me, for the same parking site but different dates.

    The court ordered us both to file anything which we seek to reply upon by a certain date (i.e. witness statements, defences etc) to which I complied with. To date I have received nothing from Gladstones solicitors apart from a particulars of claim.

    Do I go to court tomorrow and tell the Judge that the last claim (same circumstances) was found in my favor, and this is clear evidence they have no respect for the court in filing robo claims and they are now seeking to ambush me in court therefore the claim should be thrown out.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    MM

    What shall I do now?
    Follow the court's instruction and file and serve a paper copy of my witness statement.

    Did you get their pack and what do the pics and the contract show? Are they different from the earlier case? Have they somehow plugged the gaps they had before and how?

    My hearing was meant to be next week and I called the Bristol county court today and was told that Gladstone had told the court the claim was settled!

    Could they have done the same in your case?

    Is this less than 7 days. If so apply to the court for costs. Sounds as if Gladstones are trying to duck the 7 day rule.

    Sorry for the super late reply.

    On a break at court on the day we asked for a break for lunch, after lunch the claimant’s solicitor asked for the case to be adjourned as she had another hearing in Bristol.

    At this point I said that I would like it to be settled on the day, the Judge (who simply seemed to not like me) agreed with her and adjourned.

    Shortly after Gladstones Solicitors confirmed to me they would not be going ahead with their claim against me.

    Phew!

    Thanks for all your help people!

    And so, you then wrote to Ms Biased Judge and attached your costs schedule, including the wasted costs for attending the hearing - the costs that she (we assume) reserved? Claim them immediately.

    But - YAY - you won, another one bites the dust! Adding to the approx 99% win rate here!
