The Case

Practice Striking out. The claimant company, Phones, successfully applied for summary judgment to have the counterclaim of the defendant company, EE, struck out, in a dispute that arose out of Phones' financial difficulties. EE had no realistic prospect of success on the counterclaim and there was no other compelling reason why the claim should be allowed to proceed to trial.
