In here that court battle wouldn't even start or would stop to the first hearing as there is nothing illegal happening. Loser pays and money doesn't buy you more time in a court
Mods, can I have the green light to name and shame? The company certainly deserve it.
If the company in question would have had their way, this would not have been a criminal thing, it would have been a civil lawsuit. If it were criminal then it would be even worse because in the UK now you can't claim legal expenses back as a defendant, even if you win. The prosecution can do so, if they win though. It's bullshit.
Now that sounds fucked up court system, if you can't claim your expenses that came due to some other peoples actions. Holy cow...
