Appleby Global Group LLC v British Broadcasting Corporation and another

Practice – Transfer of proceedings between divisions of High Court. The application of the first defendant BBC to have a claim against it transferred from the Business list of the Chancery Division to the Media and Communications List in the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court was unsuccessful. The Chancery Division held that there was no significant difference between the venues, and both were sufficiently experienced and able to address the issues that the case, which concerned the alleged use and publication of information in the claimant's database, was likely to raise.
