My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today. I need to ask you some preliminary questions to be able to help you.

Which Court dealt with the matter? What was the issue?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It was civil court hearing, and was brought against company by one of the ex-employees ( in employment matters mainly). That company has many hotels, and the court took place not in the same town where the events discussed in court happened.So i don't know place ( name of the town,court...) either.

Expert:  Alice H replied 3 years ago.
Without the Court details and full names of the parties it will not be possible to obtain this information. I am happy to wait for you to obtain this information. Otherwise I can ask customer services to refund your money.

Is it possible to find out all court cases brought against company ( Britannia Hotels ltd ) In time period Feb 2007 - June 2007

Expert:  Alice H replied 3 years ago.
I still need to know which Court dealt with the matter. There is no central database for these things.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

There are sixteen possible towns on that list, most likely of them is Manchester.Even if i wanted to try all of them, whom/where should i write in order to get this information?

Hello,

The only care I can find involving Britannia Hotels is this 2002 one

Thank You


You gave me a good starting point, and i do understand that you are giving general advice not doing an online research. Is there, maybe, any other websites besides that 'bailii' i could use?


Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX for keeping you so long.
