JSC Mezhdunarodniy Promyshlenny Bank and another v Pugachev and another

Practice – Adjournment of proceedings. In the course of enforcement proceedings, the first defendant applied to adjourn the trial as, allegedly, the jurisdiction of the court was not engaged in relation to him. The Chancery Division considered whether to continue with the trial on the day that the application was made. It held that it would be a monumental waste of costs to stop the trial, and the most proportionate way of dealing with the situation would be to continue with it.
