Saxton v Bruzas

Privilege – Legal professional privilege. The new material fell well short of being capable of establishing fraud or iniquity that would justify overriding or ignoring the legal professional privilege which otherwise would attach to all that the whistle-blower's statement had described. As a result, it was not admissible and so there was no new evidence on which the applicant wife could rely to justify reopening the financial remedy proceedings. Accordingly, the Family Division dismissed the wife's application to set aside the judge's decision, which in turn had dismissed the wife's application to set aside a consent order.
