Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Have you been given a return date for the application for injunction please?
Ok - you should attend on 21st May 2014 and set out your objections
The Judge will then (if you object to the injunction) set down the matter for a full hearing
In the meantime the Judge will decide whether to make an interim order
The Judge may continue with the injunction, dismiss it, or adjourn it
But the next hearing wont be the full trial, but to decide whether the interim order should continue
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you can.
But the Judge may not as the next hearing is not the full hearing
Its an interim hearing
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
Please remember that I am always happy to help if you have future questions, even if I am in Court I can normally respond within a few hours. For future information, please start them with ‘For Alex W’.

Hi Alex - we wish to dispute the claim made by the claimant. We are a small group of like minded professionals undertaking complaint investigations for Local Authorities - we are not resource rich! We have completed our work and provided the report to the Local Authority. There are some matters we have provided an opinion on that relate to the complainant's wife and what she might need to know. We have made it very clear our report must not be provided to the complainant's wife. Ultimately it is up to the City Council now to to formally respond and provide a copy of our report to the complainant. The injunction is unnecessary as we are not sharing the report with anyone! We would like to know how to dispute the claim and cancel the injunction. The injunction is issued by the County Court and there is a Defence form at the back.
Thanks Alex - what I am having difficulty understanding is why we cannot have the injunction cancelled and why we have to go to a trial. The claimant through the injunction is prohibiting us from doing something we weren't going to do, are not authorised to do and have not recommended either. The injunction is completely unnecessary as it serves no purpose - it is not stopping anything and nothing was going to happen - does this make sense? This is a real inconvenience for us and surely there must be a way to have this matter cancelled?
Thanks Alex - I've got a couple of questions left but I need to go out now so will reply when I am back later.
Hi Alex - Are we able to instruct a solicitor to represent us or would we need to attend in person? As I mentioned to you the person who wrote the report will actually be away on holiday on the date of the hearing. Also can we not just send our defence in the post and have the matter dealt with on the details we provide?
