Step One

COMPILING THE CASE

A Statement of Claim must be produced by those bringing a case, known as the Plaintiffs. Their Statement sets out in point from the basic facts of the dispute, the wrong being alleged, and the relief or remedy being sought.

Next, the Plaintiff’s Statement of Claim must be accompanied by supporting evidence: documents and testimonies proving their case beyond any reasonable doubt.

This evidence must be duly sworn by those not party to the dispute in the form of witnessed statements; and it must consist of the original documents themselves, and not copies.

As well, anyone whose testimony is used in this body of evidence must be willing to come into Court to testify and affirm their own statement.
