1. The Claimant was described on the N252 as "Rob" when his full name was Robert, which the Defendant says renders the Bill inaccurate (notwithstanding the fact that all of the Court Orders named him as "Rob")

2. The fact that the Claimant was a 54-year-old record producer which the Defendant said rendered him more likely than the average client to have BTE insurance.
