Hi, I was wondering could someone help me, under advice from the ECC I've decided to pursue a European small claim. I went to courts.ie and found the closest court to me that it says deals with this, this being Portlaoise court offices. Before Christmas, I took time off work and I went in and lodged the claim in person but it was clear at the time they'd never seen one before and didn't know what I was talking about. Anyway last week I got my fee and paperwork back saying they don't believe it's the correct place to make the claim, despite any reading I've done being to the contrary. They believe it's a jurisdiction issue. They are clearly listed on courts.ie and the European courts website as the court to handle my claim. My understanding from reading is that the claim can be made in the jurisdiction of the claimant or else the jurisdiction of the defendant. I opted for my own jurisdiction I've since contacted them to query why they returned the papers to me but have got no response since to either of my queries. I've sent screenshots and quoted relevant websites and I believe I was correct in my application. So I'm assuming their lack of response is their way of saying get lost. So where do I go from here? How do I make a European small claim? Where do I make it? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
