Alex Watts : Does that help?
JACUSTOMER-805g10n6- :

but the case wasnt heard, does this mean it has to be paid

Alex Watts :

The original case was dealt with and there is an order for costs.

Alex Watts :

The enforcement claim was struck out only

Alex Watts :

Indeed there was no reason for a new claim for enforcement you have an existing order

Alex Watts :

Therefore it can be enforced

Alex Watts :

Does that clarify?
