Sir Andrew Morritt V-C

Representation David Kitchin QC and Adrian Speck (instructed by Schillings) for the claimants.
  Bruce Carr (instructed by the Treasury Solicitor) as advocate to the court.
Judgment Dates: 23 May 2003


Practice and procedure - Parties - Identification and description - Power of court to grant interlocutory relief against parties not identified by name - CPR 3.10.

The Case

The court had power to grant interlocutory relief against a defendant described otherwise than by name. The proper application of CPR 3.10 was incompatible with a conclusion that the joinder of a defendant by description rather than name was for that reason alone impermissible.
