Here is a typical email The Prankster receives.
Hi, I was up at court on Monday. Case got adjourned. BW only sent me their defence 9 days before hearing anyway. They asked me to name driver. Judge said she isn't going to do that. After a bit of arguing the judge adjourned it so VCS have to submit another file to say if they are pursuing me as driver or registered keeper and I have to submit a new defence as to why I think I shouldn't pay the invoice.
The Prankster has heard of dozens of cases where the hearing has been adjourned for the parking company to get their act together and file proper paperwork. Never the other way round.
Given the case is only over £100, that the parking company are spending £200 to send along a solicitor, and that BW's entire business revolves around the court process, it would seem entirely proportional behaviour to the size of the claim to dismiss it, rather than make the defendant come back another day.
