Norwich Pharmacal order discharged where claimants had not made full and frank disclosure


Re: ORB A.R.L. & Ors v Fiddler & Anor [2016] EWHC 361 (Comm)

The defendant challenged the issuing of a Norwich Pharmacal order against him, on the grounds that the claimants had failed to make full and frank disclosure and were pursuing an illegitimate purpose in obtaining the order, as their intention was to gather evidence which would damage the credibility of another individual, R, in the main litigation proceedings, rather than to gain redress for any wrongdoing alleged. Held: The order was discharged.

Lorna Skinner and Nicholas Gibson were involved in this case.
