NEW DISTRICT COURT RULES – DEFENDANTS RESPONSE TIME

NEW DISTRICT COURT RULES – DEFENDANTS RESPONSE TIME

Written by Shane

Created: 15 June 2012

There has been a further change to the District Court Rules – Civil Procedure

Previously a defendant had 30 working days or 31 working days including the day of service to file Form 3 – Response by Defendant.

The defendant now has only 20 working days to file Form 3 – Response by Defendant.

The Plaintiff’s Information Capule and the Defendant’s Information Capsule must also be served within 20 working days.

We suggest that you check with your solicitor in the first instance.
