Hi Following a legal battle with an ex-franchisor, an injunction

Resolved Question:

Hi

Following a legal battle with an ex-franchisor, an injunction was put in place to further cement the non-compete covenant that was in place.

After some investigation, we found that one of the three witness statements that the court relied contained lies. We had emails to prove this.

At a closed meeting, we presented our evidence to the claimant. Due to lack of funds to get further advice at the time, we agreed to their request for a drop hands.

As the court relied on a witness statement that contained untrue information, would the order still be valid?

Thanks!

Hello,

I am afraid yes, the order will remain valid until it is varied by the court.

Evidence of the fabricated witness statement may be sent to the court with a request that the court order be varied.

Hope this helps

What would or could be achieved by requesting the court order be varied?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Unless the variation is in your favour and works for you, not much to achieve.
