Bruce v TTA Management Ltd and others

Practice – Summary judgment. The claimant commenced proceedings in tort and contract, alleging that his shares in a company had been undervalued as a result of a conspiracy by the defendants. The defendants successfully applied to strike out the claim, and the claimant appealed. The Chancery Division held that the Chief Master had erred in finding that the claimant's statement of case did not disclose a reasonable ground for bringing the claim, and that it had not been appropriate to dispose of the claimant's claim in deceit summarily.
