    So what's this claim all about?

      Small claims court hearing

      Hi,

      I am defendant in personal money dispute - which is a new experience for me.

      The claimant has started a claim via MCOL - I have now received a Trial Hearing date; the Court paperwork states "Parties serve and file copy documents 14 days before the hearing"

      When the claimant started the claim, the POC were not specific and I did mention this when initially replying to the Court. I asked that the case should be particularized or struck out. This was ignored by the
      Court and a Hearing date has been set.

      How detailed should the paperwork which I submit to the Court be?

      Legally, what would my position be if the Claimant failed to send me a copy of the paperwork which was sent to the Court?

      Thank you.

        Court date due but no paperwork from claimaint

        Hi,

        I have a Court date due (from MCOL) within 14 days. The instructions from the Court were for all sides to send paperwork to be used at trial to all parties 14 days before the trial date.

        As yet I have not received any case paperwork from the Claimant.

        Could someone please advise where I stand on this legally?

        Should I attend Court and tell the Judge that I have not had an opportunity assess the Claimants case against me? What is the likely outcome to this?

        Going by previous experience I would think the Claimant has sent the paperwork to the Court thinking he can simply ignore me.

        Any advise would be very helpful.

        Thank You

              Re: Court date due but no paperwork from claimaint

              Is this hearing in relation to the claim on your other thread here > http://legalbeagles.info/forums/show...572#post720572 and also a third thread of yours here > http://legalbeagles.info/forums/show...580#post713580

              Back to the question in hand.

              I think you need to ring the court to check whether the Claimant has filed a WS at court but not served it on you.

              Have you filed your Witness Statement even if the Claimant hasn't filed theirs?

                Hi seems you have other threads on the same claim?

                When is the hearing?

                I'll ask @Kati if she can merge them all please.

                Have you checked with court on the status of the claim?

                Is your witness statement prepared/sent?

                    Re: Court date due but no paperwork from claimaint

                    Hi Di,

                    Yes my witness statement has been filed along with all the relevant documentation. But I have not received a WS from the claimant?

                    Should I contact the Court to notify them of this now - with less than 14 days to the trial?

                    Thanks in advance.

                    Hi Nem,

                    Thank you for your reply - much appreciated.

                    The trail is now less than 14 days away. I have filed my WS and all relevant documentation.

                    Not heard anything from the claimant with regards WS or Bundle.

                    What is the legal procedure in these circumstances? I have not contacted the Court as yet, shall do so on Monday.

                    What if the Claimant has filed his WS but failed to send me a copy?
