Alex Watts : Hi and thanks for asking for me.
Alex Watts : What is it you want to know?

Hi Alex,


I am the defendant in a civil claim


About 3 weeks ago, I received a notice of discontinuance from the claimant's solicitor which states that the claimant wishes to discontinue the whole claim.


I was scheduled for a case management conference at my local county court tomorrow morning. Do I still need to attend?


I rang the court today and they said that they have received the notice of discontinuance but the cmc hearing is still scheduled.


The court said that the judge will see the notice of discontinuance at the hearing tomorrow but they could not advise me on whether I should attend or not.

Alex Watts : I would attend.
Alex Watts : Just to be safe.
Alex Watts : You can also ask the court for your costs to date, if any.
Alex Watts : You will get £90 expenses for attending tomorrow.
Alex Watts : But I would attend if it is still listed and take the notice with you.
Alex Watts : But check today later to make sure it is still listed.
Alex Watts : Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
