Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.
Are you and your brother named as different defendants on the court details or is it only your brother named on the court document?
When multiple defendants are sued, default judgment is able to be obtained against a single defendant. The claim proceeds against the other defendants which have filed a defence. Therefore your the Claimant can enter judgment and enforce the judgment against your brother.
Further the claim against will continue.
Do you understand what i have stated so far?
Yes indeed we can talk about how the process works.
You should notify the court that judgment ought to be set-aside because the claim against Luke can not be separated from the claim against you. Therefore judgment was entered in contravention of CPR 12.8 (2)(a).
The email address is***@******.***
I dont know whether they will refund you but you can ask for repayment.
Yes to all questions.
Your brother will need to attend the hearing if an application is made and the email draft is fine.
Ps I am not always online. Therefore it is best to open a new question and reserve for my attention because if I can't respond to it another expert can answer it. Therefore you are not left waiting for when I am back online which could be hours or days.
