Thank you for your prompt reply.
Two more things:
1. I take it that I can lodge a minute sheet at the Sheriff Clerks Office, is this correct? Do I need to do this in writing or simply go to the office, inform the SCO staff of my wish to lodge the minute sheet and the SCO staff will do this for me?
2. Could you point me to the rule number(s) you based your answer on?
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your answer.
If the defenders already lodged the return, how does this change my situation: can I still lodge for dismissal? If so, how?
