Rules of Court in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Aiden Shipping Company Ltd v Interbulk Ltd (Vimeira)
    • House of Lords
    • 22 Mayo 1986

  • Barton v Wright Hassall LLP
    • Supreme Court
    • 21 Febrero 2018

    Their lack of representation will often justify making allowances in making case management decisions and in conducting hearings. But it will not usually justify applying to litigants in person a lower standard of compliance with rules or orders of the court. The overriding objective requires the courts so far as practicable to enforce compliance with the rules: CPR rule 1.1(1)(f).

  • Evans v Bartlam
    • House of Lords
    • 30 Abril 1937

    One is that where the judgment was obtained regularly there must be an affidavit of merits, meaning that the applicant must produce to the Court evidence that he has a prima facie defence. The principle obviously is that unless and until the Court has pronounced a judgment upon the merits or by consent, it is to have the power to revoke the expression of its coercive power where that has only been obtained by a failure to follow any of the rules of procedure.

  • Attorney General of Trinidad and Tobago v Matthews
    • Privy Council
    • 20 Octubre 2011

    There is no rule which states that, if the defendant fails to file a defence within the period specified by the CPR, no defence may be filed unless the court permits. At most, it can be said that, if the defendant fails to file a defence within the prescribed period and does not apply for an extension of time, he is at risk of a request by the claimant that judgment in default should be entered in his favour.

  • AEI Rediffusion Music Ltd v Phonographic Performance Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 19 Febrero 1999

    In doing this the new Rules are reflecting a change of practice which has already started. It is now clear that a too robust application of the "follow the event principle" encourages litigants to increase the costs of litigation, since it discourages litigants from being selective as to the points they take. If you recover all your costs as long as you win, you are encouraged to leave no stone unturned in your effort to do so.

  • Pritam Kaur v S. Russell & Sons Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 14 Diciembre 1972

    My so doing, we make the law consistent in itself: and we avoid confusion to practitioners. so I am prepared to hold that, when a time is are-scribed by statute for doing any act, and the it ac I cat only be done if the Court office is open on the day when the rime expires, then, if it turns out in any aartcular case that the day is a Sunday or other dies non, tie time is extended until the next day on which the Court office is open

  • Birkett v James
    • House of Lords
    • 25 Mayo 1977

    To justify dismissal of an action for want of prosecution the delay relied upon must relate to time which the plaintiff allows to lapse unnecessarily after the writ has been issued. A late start makes it the more incumbent upon the plaintiff to proceed with all due speed and a pace which might have been excusable if the action had been started sooner may be inexcusable in the light of the time that has already passed before the writ was issued.
