Can a defendant in a civil case present information that they feel is relevant , before a court after the date set by the judge , and the order to present e.g structural calculations etc to him, to give his final ruling on the case.

1. Dear Andrew, if you have relevant evidence which you wish to put before the court, you should go ahead and place it before the court and seek an order confirming its submission. At the very worst, the judge will refuse to have regard to it. However, if you don't attempt to put the evidence before the court, it will forever remain unseen by the judge. So, you should at least attempt to put the evidence before the court even if it gets refused. Be aware that judges always lean towards including evidence even if it is submitted after the date they have laid down. So, it you don't try, you won't be successful.

2. Ultimately, you won't be penalised for attempting to add evidence after the date for submission.
