    Yes, you do need to be properly prepared - and ready with all the facts to argue the case. If the court was 45 mins running late, I would be sitting there, re-reading my documentation and making notes of dates etc.

    At least from the experience you had, you will learn for next time and go in properly prepared.

    I think it is a useful thread.
    It highlights some very important issues.
    A members experience of the court system will be useful for other members wishing to prepare for court.


    There were some very good posts on preparing for court from a member called Joannepowell. If you do a member name search you will find them
    All posts in good faith, but do not rely on them

    It seems that Bournemouth CC must be the only one where the ushers - all in my experience formidable women, insist that phones are produced before entering the chamber and switched off at that point in the corridor. I never take my phone into the building.

    In December at a CC hearing my opponent did not know how to switch off his new i phone. The usher snatched it from him, pressed a few buttons and discarded it to the carpeted floor of the corridor for him to pick up. Bearing in mind he was of the opinion that women are all inferior it was amusing to find the judge taking the case was incredibly like Hattie Jacques in manner and looks. It was his worst nightmare I could tell.

    I am of the opinion that CC judges have a 'court persona' which enables them to get through the day and for the nervous newbie it is not always a pleasant experience.

    Well respect goes both ways, and this could be a criminal offense (try to do that to someone in the street and see what the police thinks about it...)

    claymore#21 I have, indeed, had a learning experience. I have always used the 'paper' option for a S21 but this time I used online. The paper option is easier to follow, I think. Not that I have to follow a S21 through to court all that often!
