Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and will be able to resolve your legal problem today.
If the original court hearing was adjourned, you will receive notice of a new hearing in a few weeks from the court. There is nothing more that you need to do, although I would chase the court by phone in a month if you don't receive anything.
You cannot claim against the court for wasted costs; only the other party and that is if you are successful in your claim.
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you have any further questions and I will be delighted to assist.
Otherwise, I shall be grateful if you will please mark your enquiry as “Closed” and give me a “Positive” rating in order to conclude this matter.
You need to make enquiries with the court office then. I have never heard of an application for wasted costs against the court; only the party whose fault it was that the hearing was adjourned.
