The Case

An application for further particulars of the claimant's case, together with an application for an adjournment of the trial date based on the defendant's health, were dismissed in circumstances where nothing more was needed to clarify the claim and where the medical reports relied on failed to give details as to the defendant's inability to stand trial.
