LISTING – WAITING TWO YEARS FOR PERMISSION TO APPEAL: 10 MONTHS TO HEAR AN APPLICATION: THIS IS NOT A MODERN JUSTICE SYSTEM

I’m quite happy to carry on posting about listing issues.  Litigants should not suffer in silence.  I post these three reports without comment.

Delay of 10 months for listing of applications

“Fast track personal injury claim in Central London County Court, both parties made applications – ours seeking to strike out claim as no such legal entity
as the D issued against, and C’s for seeking to amend the name of the D. Both Applications made in January 2018, CLCC has just sent the parties
a Notice of hearing date (dated 7.4.18) for Applications to be heard (with no ELH) on 3.10.18.”

A two year wait

“Further to the complaint about ‘4 months to get a response from court’. we (as respondents) have now been waiting for more than 2 years for Bristol District Registry to make a decision regarding permission to appeal – We feel bound not to enforce the judgment debt in the meantime and each letter or phone call chasing this a further waste of resources.”

 

Case taken out of list the afternoon before trial

“Just been notified (at 2.50pm) that a hearing listed tomorrow (11 April 2018) in the County Court at Stafford has been vacated due to unavailability
of Judges. Both parties have incurred Counsel’s brief fee”
