It is not that the actions are "incorrect", its the case
of having to go to the expense of going through a legal process to defend
the actions of prior assignment to a party where another party is of the opinion
that that action has materially damaged their position in some way, or defending
the actions of non-assignment to a party who takes the position that such a
decision has materially damaged them. What are the costs of engaging in such a
legal defense? And secondly is the potential that if the aggrieved party receives
a decision in their favour with material compensation attributed in part or in full to
the name body, what is the likely amount of these damages?

Ok - so I can rephrase the question slightly.

But I am not a competent person to then attempt to answer it!
