On 20th December 2019 I attended before HH Judge Freedman in the County Court at Newcastle upon Tyne to argue an appeal on the issue of “betterment” instructed by the very competent and very pleasant Mr Liam Davidson of Winns Solicitors. The decision is (as far as I know) the only decision of a Circuit Judge on the point, and also has some interesting comments on the viability of an illegality defence in credit hire claims. The judgment can be downloaded here: Jack -v- Borys (2019).
There are still a few places left on the Credit Hire for Claimants Conference in Manchester on 2nd April 2020, so if you’d like to attend please drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org
