It's Sandra - Menu Printers - long time no speak.
The Defendants on the claim form are named as individuals, but their defence is that they were trading a limited company, which has now gone into insolvency.
So would the defendants personally get the cost award (if I lose the case) or the insolvent company
Not the answer I wanted, but yep it does help.
We had the pre-trial review on Wednesday and the Judge laboured the fact that I had to prove I owned the business (as opposed to my husband). One of the other defendants (there were originally 4, but two were dismissed last week as only employees) confirmed that she worked for me and not my husband.
The judge asked the remaining defendants several times if they now accepted I owned the business and they repeated 'no they didn't'.
The Judge then said I had to produce more evidence to prove it by midday the following day and to bring my three witnesses who are attending to state that they know I own the business (My daughter who works with me, A current employee for over 10 years and a customer of many years). His comment was 'the more the merrier'.
Do you think that the judge does believe me and that he is just 'dotting the i's and crossing the T's so to speak).
