During my court case last week concerning a property I own in Sandbanks – Poole, the hearing was to determine whether or not I was in time to bring a claim for damages against a firm of solicitors in Dorset, who had originally dealt with the purchase of the property in 1996.
During my one hour cross-examination defence counsel appeared to be trying to confuse me by posing numerous ‘hypothetical’ questions as to what I would have thought about various matters in 2007 ?
It has been reported I gave three different answers to the same question. To one of the questions I did reply yes, then said no and then said I don’t know! How could I answer what I would have thought 4 years ago when it was something I had never considered. I did not know the answer and I did not want to lie.
Justice Voss appeared to be more confused than me because for part of the morning session he thought he was dealing with a personal injury claim. He then apologised for this to us all.
