DPA: the conclusion
(see blog 2020 – 80) This is the second loose end. I stupidly believed their solicitor’s costs’ draftsman when he wrote to me committing to pay me my costs within 21 days. Over nearly 6 months later, and a reminder letter, a court application, a court hearing and court order, the MoJ finally pay the agreed amount.
This guy’s performance at the videolink court hearing was bizarre and embarassing: chopping and changing his excuses, no evidence served, he didn’t know damages had already been paid or even how prisoners are paid.
Why let it go to a hearing when the result was inevitable? Was this an ego – driven power trip to delay payment.
Oh, well, onto my next three cases…
Be happy, be safe and be kind.
