    Wrong contract in bundle. ?significant 17th May 19 at 12:43 PM
    Hi wise people.
    I'm helping someone with a case for stopping in a no stopping road & the company have sent a bundle for us. In that, the contract attached is for another area & not for the road or case is concerned with. Is this significant? If it's just a human error, can they bring the correct contract to court.

    I'm guessing it matters then. We've got a court date in a couple of weeks time. So can the company send the correct contract or bring it to the court? Should I mention this in my WS?

    After being advised to keep quiet you want to mention it to them?

    No surprises are allowed in court so if they can't show the correct one in time it hampers their case no end.

    You usually have a deadline to submit evidence. After that they will struggle to get it through. Hopefully nobody will tip them off.

    Point it out in court and refuse to let the case be adjourned if they squeak that they need time to address the error. Tough, you will have been put to more than enough harassment and have taken a day off work, so go for the jugular and win, and then seek your costs.

    Don't forget to file & serve your Costs Schedule (see NEWBIES thread) as well as your WS and evidence but no mention of that contract...not till the hearing!
