Balk v Otkritie International Investment Management Ltd and others

Damages – Mitigation of loss. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division held that given that the appellant wife had exceeded the scope of the permission granted in her submissions, her appeal had to be dismissed. In any event the wife had unreasonably refused an offer letter by the claimants which had been a clear attempt to dispose of the appeal, save costs and avoid a waste of the court's time.
