Someone I know lost a case of harassment on Appeal of an Appeal. The second Appeal Judge ruled that the assessment was not 'grave - and made it clear that the harassment needed to have been 'grave', In order to consider it further we need to know, in law, what is the definition of 'grave' the Judge should have applied. At the back of my mind in such circumstances the law relies on a version of the Oxford Dictionary Thank you
"ruled that the assessment was not 'grave" sorry, should have been "ruled that the harassment was not 'grave"
the issuance of very substantial unwarranted bills in spite of correspondence explaining the bills were (indeed) wrong. The second judge made reference to a law book which argued that any action needed to be 'grave' to be considered harassment (sorry, didn't get the author). I don't know if this is relevant to a second Appeal but the book he referred to was NOT available/submitted or referenced at the first appeal? Thank you
Sorry - don't understand "what was the charge" other than that the other party harassed the Claimant by issuing bills in his name (which were not justified) and threatening legal action (Have just noticed EST - this is under UK law...)
May I ask that you re-read my responses to date - my question relates to a CIVIL matter
1. the matter relates to a CLAIM for harassment
2. In the SECOND Appeal it was held that the harassment was not 'GRAVE' and the Appeal was upheld
The PHA does use the word 'grave' - in order to contest the Judgement I need to know in these circumstances the exact definition of 'GRAVE' the Court will rely upon
It is my understanding that, for the purpose of definition, rely on a version of the Oxford Dictionary
My question is therefore - What is the definition of 'GRAVE' the Court would rely upon and where might it be found, please
"It seems the professional has left this conversation" - not very "professional" behaviour I would have thought?
But yes, please do find someone else for me, please
In essence I need to know, in an English Court, where the precise meaning of a word is required to be determined (say in a contract) - quite on what does the Court rely - the Oxford Dictionary (which version?)
Sorry, I have only just realised that I had not replied - please do close this question and return the deposit.
As you may be able to see, I have continued to use JustAnswer!!
