Brett Basdeo, CBA Member and former Vice President, has authored the fifth edition of the "Small Claims Handbook".  Mr. Basdeo, who also authored the fourth edition released in 2010, stated that "the Handbook is meant to assist the general public in pursuing legal remedy through the Summary Court of the Cayman Islands.  The 83 page handbook is "a quick reference guide that provides simple, lucid and easy to understand explanations and instructions, drawn from the Summary Court Rules 2004."

“The Complaints Commission used to get at least three requests a week for the handbook, exclusive of online downloads,” Acting Complaints Commissioner Bridgette Von Gerhardt recalled. “This edition will help to meet that demand, and we thank Maples and Calder and Mr. Basdeo for doing such a thorough and professional job.”

The handbook can be downloaded free of charge from the Office of the Complaints Commissioner's website:
