Bristol court is currently flooded which means cases are currently in chaos, paperwork unavailable and hearings moved.
One hearing was moved to Bath and heard on 4/7/2017.
This was a residential case involving a motorist parked in their own space at Lakeshore, Bristol.
The lease gives residents the unfettered right to park, so The Prankster wonders why Link Parking think they have the right to unilaterally override the lease and impose their own conditions.
Apparently The Judge agreed with The Prankster and was very harsh on Link Parking for bringing the claim.
Link Parking, you've been Gladstoned.
Gladstones parking department is staffed by the incompetent pair of Jamie Ashford and Helen Cook. If either of these two had done their job properly and undertaken the proper due diligence, The Prankster believes that the claim would never have been filed and valuable court time would not have been taken up.
Gladstones is owned by failed solicitor Will Hurley and his inept sidekick John Davies. John Davies is infamous for threatening to file a defamation case for publishing his mobile phone number. Notwithstanding the fact that it was himself who actually published his own number in the first place, it is difficult to see where defamation is involved. Anyone seeking his services as a barrister should be forewarned on his apparently shaky grasp of legal concepts.
Will Hurley and John Davies also own the International Parking Community. The Prankster calls on the government to remove their ATA status until they show they understand parking related law.
Any residents issued with tickets at Lakeshore may well have a data protection claim not only against Link, but also against the managing agents who employed them. This is because Link have no right to personal data because he motorist had every right to the quiet enjoyment of their own parking space.
The amount of claim would depend on the level of distress and harassment caused.
