Practice and procedure - Striking out - Summary dismissal - No reasonable prospect of success - Prospect of claimant establishing entitlement to anything other than nominal damages - Approach of court.
Only in exceptional cases would it be appropriate to strike out a claim on the basis that, notwithstanding any issues as to liability, the claimant could show no real prospect of establishing his entitlement to anything other than nominal damages. Although there would be difficulties in establishing the claim in the instant case, it did not fall into that category.
