Back in June, MIL had a hearing in Warrington where the hearing was adjourned and MIL's witness, Alan Davis, ordered to attend court and explain why.
1) He hadn't made it to court that day, despite making it to ParkEX the previous week.
2) Who Matt Murdoch/k was, and why his signatures changed more often than a Formula 1 tyre.
This was previously reported by the Prankster at
On Tuesday 4 October, this matter was due to return to court.
MIL Collections filed a Discontinuance to the court electronically on 28 September (less than the seven days required) and didn't sent it to the Defendant until the weekend - it arrived with her on Monday. As a result when Mrs X and Mr Wilkie walked into court on the day, the judge agreed that MIL's conduct was entirely unreasonable, and the defendant was awarded Ł199 to be paid within 14 days.
This is yet another discontinued claim from MIL where their evidence is "spectacularly deficient" and they failed to send an advocate, despite their claims in Parking News that "we always send an advocate to hearings" and their claims in court that "any advocate that attends on MIL's behalf is fully compliant with the requirements set out in the Legal Services Act 2007"
Alan Davis has now discontinued three claims known to the Prankster where he has either been ordered to attend personally, or has been ordered to cause Matt Murdoch/k to appear. As most courts do not have IMAX or Cinema facilities, it seems unlikely that Murdoch/k will ever appear before a Judge.
In the meantime, Mr Wilkie now has 12 consecutive wins against MIL, while Mr Bargepole also has no losses to date. Anyone with an MIL claim is recommended to notify MIL at the earliest opportunity that they will be asking Mr Wilkie or Mr Bargepole to represent them at any hearing. Mr Wilkie will attend any court in the country provided that he is available and his travelling costs are covered.
