Moursi v Doherty

Contract – Undue influence. The claimant's application for summary judgment succeeded, in a dispute concerning the transfer to the defendant of a property belonging to the claimant's mother (AG). The claimant alleged that the transfer had been the result of undue influence being placed on AG by the defendant. The Chancery Division held that there was no evidence to displace the presumption of undue influence, because the transaction had been preceded by inadequate and uninformed advice. Further, there was no realistic prospect that the defendant could improve on that.
