Case of the Month
11/2020
Claimants and respondents should avoid using a 'narrative' style
The EAT has recently held ( in the case of C v D - names kept private due the confidential nature of the case ) that claimants and respondents should avoid using a 'narrative' style in their claims and defences .A statement of case should set out the legal claims factually and not in detail as if a witness statement. The defence can then respond using 'admit', 'not admit' or 'deny' as well as explaining why the respondent has acted lawfully. In practice this is often difficult as unrepresented claimants often fail to particularise their claims even when writing a treatise .But even when a Claimant writes a narrative there is no need for a respondent to respond in kind.
