Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Did he discontinue the Court proceedings the first time?
yes....his reason for restarting it is that him and my sister decided to sort it out between tjemselves. which was not the case at all.....because she wont have sexual relations with him he has restarted it
Okay - did he make an application to the Court (your sister would have seen it if it was) for permission to bring a new claim?
she recieved it today and has 14 days to reply before judgement is made
Okay. Then she should reply setting out (1) that there was a previous claim that was discontinued, and no permission has been granted for the new claim and (2) set out her defence anyway.
The Court should strike it out as he needed permission to bring the claim again. TO get this he has to make an application and set out in evidence why he discontinued first time, and why he is starting it again now. Normally, it's not possible to bring this type of claim again you see - it's called an abuse of process.
SO, they might take care of the civil claim.
As for the police, yes, bring them in for the harassment, they can prosecute as this is a criminal offence.
