Hi Alex,
Hope you have had a good day.
Right the Defendants, now don't have a solicitor.
They have put in their statements (at least that is what they call them) but they are not laid out in the C.P.R. format and don't have a statement of truth on them.
They are very basic and do nothing to enhance their defence (in fact they are detrimental to it).
Do I have to accept them in this format (they don't help them at all), or do I have to object to the way they have compiled them. I am quite happy to leave them as they are as they are to be honest completely a waste of time as their defence. And would like the opportunity to use them against them in the final hearing.

Hello and thanks for asking for me.
What track is the case on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Multi Track.

The application on Friday is for the following:

Power of Arrest - for not complying with the injunction (over 100 offences)

Increasing the claim for damages

Dealing with the fact that the Defendants have discarded (scrapped) my folding machine - approx value £10,000

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
OK. Then they should be in accordance with the CPR. You can raise this as an issue. The Court will either say its ok to go ahead or adjourn and make them file correct statements.
The most important part is the statement of truth. If it is defective in another way the Court is likely to allow the evidence to stand.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
