I wrote about my Consumer Court hearing on
2011-04-18, at which I
filed my response to Exide. The next hearing was on 2011-05-19, but I
forgot to mention it here. Exide was supposed to file their evidence,
but they did not do so, and thus lost their opportunity to do so. The
next hearing was set for today, for "arguments".
I asked a lawyer friend, who said it probably meant oral arguments; so I
prepared accordingly. But, after sitting through forty-odd cases, I was
asked to submit written arguments. But someone from Exide (the affable
but largely clueless chap who has appeared before) was there, trying to
file the evidence they failed to at the last hearing. I was asked if I
had any objections, and said no. The evidence was duly accepted. Not
surprisingly, it's just a rehash of their earlier response, and says
Now I have a month to prepare a written argument.
