Judge decision -Preliminary hearing 22-10-19
"The application before the court to change the defendant was refused because it was not in line with CPR023. The defendant is so advised to file and serve with the appropriate fee CPR023 compliant application with evidence change the defendant, file a new defence and counterclaim with the consent from Trustees of the Redeemed Christian Church of God to be a substitute as defendant within 14 days"
Please: At this stage, do i need to write the new defence with evidence and make a separate application for counterclaim or I have to wait for the court to grant the amendment.

Just remind me, you are the Claimant or Defendant?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Defendant

Ok, then you need to file a new defence and counterclaim.

You also need to pay the court fee of £100

It looks like you also need a letter from the Trustees saying they agree to the amendment.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Which form do I need to fill in for new defence and countrrclaim. Thanks

No new form but it should follow this format:

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Please can you confirm the new defence and counterclaim has to be submitted within the 14 days deadline by the judge. Thanks

Correct.

Does that assist?
