No comment

Sometimes another party in a case will make an application about something in which you have no stake or interest.

This is most common in cases with many different parties. Often a disclosure debate between the first claimant and the second respondent will be irrelevant to the third claimant.

In this situation it is sensible, if you are copied into the correspondence, to let everyone know you have no comment to make.

This avoids a situation in which the relevant parties have said their piece, but the tribunal is waiting for the 14 days given to respond before making a decision. Nothing terrible will happen if this occurs, but it is normally sensible to keep the litigation moving forward.
