Hello, my name is Jim and I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
Nothing in the CPR as such - the argument is the claimant is unreliable in their evidence given the contradiction - it would be addressed in your defence and your witness evidence. It would also come out at the hearing and the claimant can be discredited given the contradiction (the judge will be invited to make their own mind up given the contradiction and to ask themselves whether this claimant is a reliable witness or not).
I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (the top right of your screen & then click “submit”), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
Yes you can do and if the court agrees then it is a situation of contempt of court (which is very serious). The statement of truth is a promise to the court that the facts are believed to be true.
