Not in court - the false statements were made in email exchanges at the time. Fortunately, I do still have access to most of them.
I am interested to know how I can raise the matter at a court or tribunal hearing, please.
I need to go out for the now until 10.30pm. Please leave an answer for me to read later
There is no court
How were these made please? And they were made 7-8 years ago?
Statements were made by email back in 2005
I dare say that the statements were made in order to stop the matter ending up in court at the time.
My understanding is that the limitation period is 6 years for simple contracts but that if there has been deceit or concealment of the truth this period is extended for up to 15 years from the event that gives rise to the cause of action. Is this not correct?
Sadly that is not the case.
An action for damages for negligence, other than one to which section 11 of this Act applies, shall not be brought after the expiration of fifteen years from the date (or, if more than one, from the last of the dates) on which there occurred any act or omission—
(a)which is alleged to constitute negligence; and
(b)to which the damage in respect of which damages are claimed is alleged to be attributable (in whole or in part).
