My lawyer has served a writ to court on the defendant's insurance company after it did respond to his letter by the deadline. He said an affidavit will be served later.

Could someone explain to me what an affidavit is? And on whom it is served and what happens after that?

Thanks.

I think, it may be a misspelling. Perhaps, it has something to do with a fee for David. Drool

Your puns are even worse than mine, Robert. Think

The word ''affidavit'' is explained in this dictionary. I think, its explanation is sufficient for someone who is not a lawyer, and relays on assistance of a jurist. For someone, who would have composed his/her question in different way, I could give suitable links leading to scholarly article, treating this problem in more elaborate way.
A man before me in this treat has given suitable links leading to basic explanations.

As to your puns, they are mostly related to the first page, ready on opening, still? Or not yet?

It wasn't my intention to cause any harm. If you think so, then sorry. Every one who felt himself/herself offended.

I did not feel offended, Robert. That's not the point.
My point was just about the equivalent of a groan and at the same time
the admission that I myself do not feel innocent of similar contributions.

I am sorry. I have not intended to cause any harm. I agree, my sense of humour has become tedious.
Sorry again, and thank you all for lessons given me up to now.
