Back in April this year I obtained a Judgment against the thug who pushed me off my bicycle because he hates cyclists. The Judgment is for £1,254. To date not a penny has been paid. Denman offered £40 a month which I considered derisory.
I know nothing about the enforcement of Judgments and have little desire to learn so I am very happy to have received the backing of the CTC to instruct lawyers to deal with this. However Denman's offer was yesterday endorsed by the Court and he has not been ordered to pay a penny towards the costs my lawyers have incurred, which are unavoidably substantial in comparison to the Judgment sum
All avenues of enforcement are closed whilst he keeps up this derisory level of payment. It appears that Courts ooze sympathy for private individuals who cannot pay their bills. Whether it is helpful to anybody in the long run to make Judgments between private citizens not worth the paper they are printed on is something I would question. But for the CTC's support my Judgment would be of negative worth after costs even once he has paid in full. And of course interest does not run.
So much for the Thames Valley Police advice given after they had decided to caution Denman; never mind I could inflict some punishment by suing him.
Denman is laughing all the way back to one of his two motor cars, which he needs (he informed the Court and the Court appears to have accepted) because he has 2 young children.
