Marashen Ltd v Kenvett Ltd

Practice – Service outside jurisdiction. Mere delay or expense could not constitute a sufficient reason for ordering alternative service within the jurisdiction in a case in which the defendant was resident in a Hague Service Convention country. So held the Chancery Division in respect of a third party's appeal against the dismissal of his application to set aside an order granting the claimant permission, under CPR 6.15, to serve an application for a third party costs order by an alternative method within the jurisdiction, in circumstances where the third party lived outside the jurisdiction.
