It is a little known procedure in law that anyone not associated with a case can assist the court by bringing matters to their attention which are relevant to the case in hand. Typically these would be matters which are either not known by the parties, or which one party has decided to deliberately suppress to the detriment of the other party.
A person who does this is known as a friend of the court, or Amicus curiae.
An Amicus Curiae document was faxed into court for ParkingEye v Sheppard. The 'friend' had no knowledge of either parties, but later the the defendant contacted the fax sender as follows.
ParkingEye 0 Fax machine 1
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the fax you sent to the courts in Dudley on the 4th of April of which they gave me a copy. I think the Judge found them very useful, as he brought them to the attention of their solicitor, the outcome being their claim was dismissed. Thank you for your interest. Regards Freddie Sheppard"
