Fewer court cases as a result of litigation tax hikes
30 March 2014 @ 19:59

COURT action taken by ordinary citizens and small companies went down by 3.8 per cent in 2013, the first year in which litigation taxes were introduced.

Criminal action reduced by 2.1 per cent, but civil cases fell by 9.2 per cent and administration, public authority or financial claims – such as unpaid wages or invoices, contesting parking or traffic fines, and anything that would come under the UK small claims courts – reduced by 15.5 per cent.

An average of 183.2 court cases per 1,000 inhabitants, or 18.3 per cent, were filed last year, although in some regions the total was higher – Murcia, Valencia, Cantabria, the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, Madrid, and Andalucía, in that order, with the most being seen in Andalucía and accounting for 21.6 per cent.
