Summary judgement/strike out application hearing notified as being same date and time as already set trial date is this usual. I have not followed the timetable since filing the SJ/SO application
Yes the trial date had been set a month earlier for dec 14. I did not put that on the form but I called to make them aware minutes after I filed it. The actual trial date was adjourned for new directions following a n244 application for (i) strike out (which failed) and (ii)permission to file my own defence following detachment from an consolidated group (iii) permission to file a counerclaim (iv) new directions. A direction deadline was provided for me to file another strikeout/summary judgement however the other side were late filing a reply and counterclaim defence (tatically delayning I feel). I wanted to base my Summary Judgement/Strike out application on there pleadings but had to meet the deadline. In the end I filed and served the SJ/SO application and used many grounds including failire to comply with court orders
the notification from the court provided a hearing date on the same day as the trial date
I was under the impression that the proceedings from the SJ/SO application filing would suspend (dispose) of proceedings till trial. I did not follow the timetable subsequent to filinging including disclosure list and witness statements
yes believe so - I dont understand how justanswer works it doesnt appear to be open to many experts as it advertises
