Practice Parties. The Queen's Bench Division considered whether it was permissible to change the name of a party after default judgment had been obtained and the procedure to be adopted when the party to be joined disputed the factual basis on which that party was being joined. The court held that the master had had jurisdiction to join the defendant and, in the circumstances, had been right to make the order that he had.
