  • Plenty of grey there to be exploited or used by a judge with a certain leaning.

    On the case I paid out for the leaning tree, the very first question I asked at the outset of the small claims lady was, are costs at play & can they be awarded.
    my thinking was if they are , I’ll give it my full attention, time and get the best legal representation and we would win and I’d have the satisfaction of billing the fcuk making the claim for my time etc etc.

    No she said, costs are never awarded in SCC.

    Fine I’ll rock up and see how it plays out , because claim was only €200 ish

    Court day arrived , one of my crew called in with COVID so I had to cover.
    judge didn’t appreciate the no show and awarded the full amount and costs of €270.

    Hold the fcukin phone says I, go back 18 months and re-read the email you replied to?

    I’ll have to go back to the judge on this…..yes you will

    Judge has discretion to do what she wants, sorry , pay up or we’ll see you back in court.

    the judiciary, a great bunch of lads & lassies….

        • I'd say if the farmer liability was clearcut then farmers would be paying mega amounts in insurance given that everyone hitting a sheep would be getting whiplash and be out of work for 5 years and can no longer enjoy sex as all they can see is sheep etc etc etc and that's an easy €3m right there.

                    • It’s only hearsay if ewe weren’t there. Stop trying to pull the will over the jury’s eyes!
                      Beware of imitations; there's another lawyer out there calling himself "Lucanlaw!" So the writing on the wall may be a forgery!

                      • Ewe'll be back in here all sheepish like correcting yourself to say you meant wool. There'll be no need to ram home the point.

                            • It's a very minor rant, more a whinge really.

                              Companies that supply products to supermarkets in mixed variety SKUs.

                              So like maybe there's two varieties of barbecue sauce in the same box. The nicer one sells out, and you're left with the other variety, but because the box isn't empty and they don't want to be stuck with them, they don't put out another box with the nicer variety till the less nice one sells out.

                              It's a bit like being told you can't have any ice cream unless you eat all your sprouts, but as an adult, by Aldi.

                              • Why is only one feeder road off/on the N7 Newlands Cross junction a constant amber light?? You can drive freely off outbound to Belgard/Tallaght (given right of way is clear), you can’t drive from Belgard/Tallaght onto N7 outbound, you’re stuck on a red light!! It irks me
