Alexander v Willow Court Management Company (1985) Ltd

Practice – Pre-trial or post judgment relief. Medical evidence provided by the appellant was insufficient to merit the grant of an adjournment as it was not independent expert evidence, did not identify the relevant medical condition with particularity, including prognosis, and did not set out the features of it that precluded her participation in the court process. The appellant had neither been present nor represented at the hearing and the application had not been made timeously or in proper form. Taken together with the absence of medical evidence explaining the appellant's absence at the hearing, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellant's appeal against the refusal of an adjournment.
