Burnden Group Holdings Ltd v Hunt (liquidator of Burnden Holdings (UK) Ltd)

Company – Insolvency. The appeal of the appellant liquidator (SH) appeal succeeded against a decision that the sole shareholder in a company in liquidation (the group) had been entitled to inspect all proofs of debt in the liquidation of the company; and that SH should personally pay the group's costs incurred in obtaining such an order. A legitimate interest on the part of the group had not been demonstrated in the relief sought. Nor had prima facie evidence of a surplus on a winding up been adduced.
