Brownlie v Four Seasons Holdings Inc

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. In a personal injury claim, the claimant applied for permission to serve the defendant in Canada. The defendant issued an application notice asking for an order that the English court had no jurisdiction to try the claim and alternatively that it should not do so. The master accepted that submission and the claimant appealed. Applying para 3.1 of Practice Direction 6B (CPR 6.37(1)(a)), the Queen's Bench Division held that the court had jurisdiction and permission was granted.
