Just received notice from Birmingham High Court that there will be a Directions hearing for costs and damages on Wednesday 13th August 2014. This is far sooner than requested by Miss Emily Slater of Cohen Cramer Solicitors (now fired) – she said that they couldn’t possibly get everyone together before w/c 22nd September 2014.
Still, now Mr Nick Statman and Mr Malcolm Statman are litigants in person and are being represented by Mr Nick Statman there are far fewer people to arrange availability! Maybe they’ve retained both Mr Matthew Richardson and Mr Adam Richardson from the trial and will need both again? Who knows ….
Still, His Honour Judge Robert Owen QC will be presiding as per the trial and I am presuming it is open court as previously for all interested to attend.
