Barron MP and another v Vines

Practice – Summary judgment. The claimants brought a claim for damages in defamation against the defendant following a broadcast on television. The defendant defended the claim. The claimant applied to either strike out the defence or for summary judgment. The Queen's Bench Division found that the defence was incoherent and failed to disclose any reasonable basis for defending the claim. Accordingly, the summary judgment application was allowed.
