Yes - when I went to the library and paid the one days fine I felt I owed, they did offer to reduce the rest by half.
Because I felt the fines hadn't been fairly applied , because I felt it was the fault of their reiminder system failure inthe first place, I refused.
Why is this relevant?
The total due was £13.70 and I paid 75p for the day as explained, leaving £12.95
Because if a complaint doesnt work and complaint to the Local Governement Ombudsman doesnt work, Judicial review will costs probably £5000 if you lose.
It appears to be the principle of it tha\t concerns you
You have paid more for this question than the dispute is over.
The first thing any law student learns is never go to court on a priniciple unless you have money to waste.
I am not prepared to continue on that basis as I have other users with problems who I have to deal with and have limited time. Opting out for another expert who might want to deal with this for you.
OK thanks - obviously as you haven't given an answer and my deposit is just that , thats fine, I'll request it back.
Thanks for considering answering anyway, Sue
