Relief from sanctions was granted by Mr Justice Globe in the case of Chartwell Estates -v- Fergies and this has been discussed, at length, in earlier posts in this blog. The Court of Appeal dismissed the defendant’s appeal today. Reasons are to be given later.
SOURCES OF INFORMATION
Information (such as it is) can be found at the 12 Kings Bench Walk website here. Essentially the appeal was refused with reasons to be given later. There is also a piece on Crown Office Chambers website here.
SO WHERE DO WE STAND NOW?
We will have to wait for the full judgment. The decision has been made by three different judges to those that heard the Mitchell and subsequent cases. Basically things are uncertain.
