Pie-chart poser


If anyone can work out what this ostensibly simple pie-chart means, then it’s festive bonus points all round.

The notice appeared recently in Bolton County Court and was sent to Legal Cheek’s tip line by an anonymous reader.

We have to admit to being stumped. Are 25% of defendants satisfied or dissatisfied? Likewise, the same conundrum applies to the three-quarters of claimants or applicants, who used to be described in a way that has subsequently been either officially or unofficially obliterated?

Clarification from the Courts Service gratefully received.
