Damages Personal injury. The claimant's representatives applied to the court for orders as to whether there should be a change in the claimant's litigation friend and whether the identity of the litigation friend should be disclosed. The Queen's Bench Division decided that any change would not produce a good effect and that pursuant to CPR 39.2(4) the identity of the claimant and litigation friend had not to be disclosed. That was necessary to protect the interests of the claimant who was a child aged four years of age, and it was in the interests of justice.
