Gregory and another v Moore and others

Practice – Points of claim. Where the second and third defendants had alleged that the first defendant Ukranian widow had been involved in the death of her English husband, Barry Pring, and was not entitled to benefit from his estate, the Chancery Division struck out part of the claim that was based on events six months after the deceased's death. The court held, among other things, that those events were, at best, peripheral to the case, and that it was right to consider limiting the scope of the factual enquiry in the claim.
