The Case

Practice Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimants loaned money to the defendants. When the defendants defaulted the claimants brought an action seeking repayment of the money. They applied for summary judgment. The Commercial Court granted the application as the borrowers and guarantors had no prospect of success at trial and therefore there had to be summary judgment for DVB and Melli Bank against the borrowers under the loan agreement and for DVB against the guarantors under the guarantees.
