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

  • Wimbledon Construction v Vago
    • Queen's Bench Division (Technology and Construction Court)
    • 20 Mayo 2005

  • Linotype-Hell Finance Ltd v Baker
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 22 Septiembre 1992

    At a brief glance they do not seem to me to reflect the current practice in this court; and I would have thought it was much to be desired that all the 19th century cases should be put on one side and that one should concentrate on the current practice. It seems to me that, if a defendant can say that without a stay of execution he will be ruined and that he has an appeal which has some prospect of success, that is a legitimate ground for granting a stay of execution.

  • Re Bayoil SA
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 31 Julio 1998

    The ability of a petitioning creditor to levy execution against the company does not entitle him to have it wound up. I emphasise that the cross claim must be genuine and serious or, if you prefer, one of substance; that it must be one which the company has been unable to litigate; and that it must be in an amount exceeding the amount of the petitioner's debt.

  • Montecchi v Shimco (U.K.) Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 04 Octubre 1978

    Now of course it is elementary that as between the immediate parties to a bill of exchange, which is treated in international commerce as the equivalent of cash, the fact that the defendant may have a counter-claim for unliquidated damages arising out of the same transaction forms no sort of defence to an action on a bill of exchange and no ground on which he should be granted a stay of execution of the judgment in the action for the proceeds of the bill of exchange.

  • Leicester Circuits Ltd v Coates Brothers Plc
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 05 Marzo 2003

    The proper approach is to make the order which best accords with the interests of justice. Where there is a risk of harm to one party or another, whichever order is made, the court has to balance the alternatives to decide which is less likely to cause injustice. The normal rule is for no stay, but where the justice of that approach is in doubt, the answer may well depend on the perceived strength of the appeal.
