Practice – Summary judgment. The Queen's Bench Division, on the claimant's professional liability claim against the defendant firm of solicitors, held that the claimant's application to amend would be refused, as it was misconceived and had been brought too late. The defendant's application for summary judgment and/or strike out in respect of five parts of the claim would be granted, as three of the five grounds had no real prospect of success and there was no reasonable ground for the claimant to have brought the other two parts.
