Judge struck a fair balance in decision to strike out


Re: Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis v Abdulle & Ors [2015] EWCA Civ 1260

The appeal considered the width of the discretion given to a first instance judge when deciding whether or not to strike out a claim for failure to comply with procedural rules, and the grounds upon which an appeal court can or should interfere with that exercise of discretion.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
