Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I want to know if this person was wrong to say this to me at public meeting

Expert:  UK-Justice replied 4 years ago.

Its wrong.

But if you were to issue proceedings then because of the nature of it, it would have to be in the High Court and jury trial.

The cost of this would be about £10,000 and if you lost you would have to pay the legal fees of the other side.

As such this is why normally only rich and famous people issue proceedings.

So legal proceedings would be expensive.

This is why you should ask for an apology or even get a Solicitor to write a letter.

I hope this helps and if there is anything else I can do to help you today please let me know.
