Hello,

This is an application to the court to strike out the claim against the defendant without a trial on the basis that the claim has no real prospect of success.

Can I help further?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Who would have made that decision?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I take it a judge would have made that decision do i get to see the defendants answer that made the judge reach that decision?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
The defendant must have made such an application and if the court deems it to have merit, it will have ordered the striking out of the claim.
You may ask the court to give you a copy of the defendants application if it was not served on you.

All the best
