Committal Proceedings in the High Court

9th Aug 2018

Edward recently represented North Yorkshire County Council in contempt of court proceedings in the High Court (Kingston-Upon-Hull District Registry). The matter concerned a man who fraudulently claimed compensation alleging he had fractured his ankle in a defect on the public highway. The council managed to establish that the defect complained about was not in situ on the date of the alleged accident. A fundamentally dishonest finding was secured at first instance and committal proceedings were commenced.
