  • Tut tut Katy, "Writ"?
    Sadly, the Writ was abolished over 10 years ago, and in a pathetic attempt at making the law more "accessible" it was replaced with the infinitely more plebeian "Claim Form". I ask you - which is more likely to impress the client (which is, after all, the ultimate object of the exercise) - issuing a Writ or issuing a Clam Form?
    I cannot bring myself to utter the contemptible phrase, and simply announce in suitably grave tones that I shall be issuing "proceeings", which I find has the desired effect.
    This pointless and patronising change of terminology was introduced by the same set of pillocks who replaced the perfectly comprehensible "Counterclaim" with the perfectly incomprehensible "Part 20 Claim".
    Hanging's too good for them!

  • City Gent is so right. And 'statements of case' instead of 'pleadings'; and 'order requiring the debtor to attend court to provide information' cf. 'oral examination', albeit the latter may be mis-understood! I always thought that a claim form was something you got at the DSS, not the High Court of Justice.
