Munroe K Ltd and another company v Bank of Scotland plc

Practice – Limitation of action. The defendant bank was entitled to summary judgment on part of the claimant's claim, as it had been brought out of time pursuant to the Limitation Act 1980. The Queen's Bench Division held that the limitation period could not be extended until every last particular of breach had been identified. Further, the claimant could not rely on the terms of a standstill agreement that purported to suspend time, in relation to limitation, when claiming in relation to an event that took place after the dates specified in the agreement and did not relate to the events specified in the agreement.
