  Stephen Rubin QC (instructed by Cooke, Young and Keidan LLP) for 2nd defendant.
Judgment Dates: 30 January 2014


Practice - Service - Service outside jurisdiction - Claimant bank being granted order to serve non-party costs order on individual, V, in America - V applying for order to be discharged - Whether application to be granted - CPR 6.15(2).

The Case

Practice Service. Deutsche Bank applied without notice to add V as a party to the proceedings for the purpose of costs only. The Commercial Court, in proceedings concerning Deutsche Bank, held that a previous order granted in favour of the bank to serve V out of the jurisdiction could not stand where, on the facts, there were no grounds for justifying service by alternative means.
