CIVIL MATTER ,
DISPUTE BETWEEN MYSELF AND ANOTHER PARTY
Ok, when was this hearing please?
THREE YRS AGO
SORRY ALEX WATTS MY SON CALLED ME FROM PORTUGAL
When was the hearing?
Please turn off CAPS as it looks like you are shouting :)
JUST CANNOT SEE HOW A CASE CAN GO AHEAD WITH THE ONLY DEFENDENT NOT THERE, HAVING INFORMED THE OTHER SIDES LAWYERS OF WHY COULD NOT ATTEND ,BY E.MAIL , LETTER AND TELEPHONE CALL, PREVIOUS TO THE HEARING, TOLD THEM TO INFORM THE COURT, LUNG CANCER IS VERY SERIOUS, I ALSO SENT THEM HOSPITAL ADMITTANCE FORM , AND DOCTORS NOTES
caps now turned off , to old for these computers, need new glasses. ha
Ok, when was the case and when did you find out about it?
week before going into hospital, maybe less
Ok, so rough dates?
i can assure you ,noway did i want cancer or to go into hosptal, really shook me up i dont even like the dentist , but the hospital staff were brilliant
So you had a dispute 3 years ago which went to Court.
When did you become aware of the result?
october 18th operation 2011
Yes, when did you become aware of the result?
after came out of hospital nearly 3wks later but i stayed at my daughters as it was a big operaton
Ok, so you knew of the result in 2011?
Ok. Why therefore have you waited 3 years before considering appealing the matter?
the shares were reg in deleware usa, there as court case in portugal going on as ts the family
holiday home, plus deleware laws do only recognise thier own laws ,nobody elses
am still attending the hospital as have emphsema as well, and the hospital are great and very caring and really look after me
Its bad news I am afraid. You can only ever appeal a decision within 21 days of the decision.
This decision was back in 2011 and it is now 2015.
Therefore you could have appealed over 3 years ago.
it really upsets me to know that a court can do this
The Court will ask when you found out about this.
You said you knew about this in 2011 therefore any appeal date would run 21 days from date of knowledge
This still leaves that you are sadly 3 years out of time, given the delay
I understand the circumstances but given the time that has elapsed it is still over 3 years since you knew and you only have 3 weeks to appeal
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
i was more interested in keeping alive and notified the other side, surely they should have postponed the case, would have thought a judge would have done nowing i was ill and notified the other side previously
iim sure the other side never told the judge i was ill
Indeed I understand. But sadly my view is has still been 3 years. You have significant delay to overcome.
You can of course try and appeal, but my view sadly is that given it has been 3 years it is not likely to succeed.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
so decisions in court can be taking against you even though you are unable to attend and you hae good reason not to, ...unbelievable, what is the world coming to
They can, but that is why you can appeal. But the rules state you must appeal within 21 days.
You knew about this in 2011 and sadly my view it is too late now.
I am very sorry but I have to be truthful.
