christhelawyer : HiWelcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
christhelawyer : You have several options including misfeasance in public office, and seeing for wrongful prosecution. These could be used. You can also seek costs in the criminal case if the prosecution was misconceived
hi we have already applied for costs which was judged on papers the judge say he would find for us proves the charge should never been laid and continued but cost 1988 give $ 240 per half day of court time .the problem my barraster had no court time as the case was put off 3 times and breifs werent given for 9 months then show they were bring charges for a false reason givng us a complete defence our barraster told then that and then the charges were withdrawn before the main court hearing. regards
christhelawyer : Perhaps malfeasance in public office may sort this out better, a civil claim
christhelawyer : The costs remedy is limited because the amounts are not high under this heading.
christhelawyer : A private prosecution would not work because this would need proof of criminal intent, and while this seems to have been at least incompetent I think you are better off suing for malfeasance in public office.
christhelawyer : Do you want to know more about this?
answers please ; With clear evidence will police bring the charge of misfeasance against a public officer or would it have to be a private prosecution ? Is lying in briefs perjury even although the court case was withdrawn ? If a lawyer brings a criminal charge for a council against a party but proof is that he knew it was false ,and he also refused to supply brief for many months and then withdrew the charges because we were not the proper party wedidnt own the alledged buildings/caravan and were not doing any building work, He knew this fact and others (not only not guilty but the notice to fix that cause the charge was wrong ! a vehicle and not subject to a N T F, from the start ) in letters to council he said tell me to wof & reg it and that will stop the n t f. He kept to case going 9 months charging council over $30,000 fees and when we entered evidence about the WOF & REG letter in your cost claim showing he knew, he then left his law firm and resigned as a partner., What is my best action .law soc,court etc Is there a law firm specializing in my problem that would help in only making sure and guiding a person taking a private prosecution . You are free to ph me about this very unusual case kind regards XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX
