Brothers Enterprises Ltd v New World Hospitality UK Ltd

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment. The proceedings concerned a dispute between two adjacent trading businesses regarding interference with an easement, which allowed the claimant's customers to have access to toilets through the defendant's hotel. The Chancery Division dismissed the claimant's application for an interim injunction in circumstances where proper notice of the initial application had not been given and where the defendant had confirmed that the obstruction would only last for seven further weeks and had offered an alternative solution, which seemed to be feasible.
