In the instant case the claimant had obtained default judgment against the defendants on a claim to have a lease she had granted to them set aside. The defendants sought to have that judgment set aside under CPR 13.3. It was held that the defendants had shown a real prospect of successfully defending the claim, and that their delay had not deprived them of their defence. Accordingly, the default judgment was set aside.
