Building Register Ltd v Weston and another

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. In a libel case brought by the claimant against the defendant, the trial judge determined the meanings of the words complained of. Following that determination, the defendant applied to re-amend their defence. In a case management decision, the Queen's Bench Division, applying established principle, held that the amendments would not be allowed but that nevertheless the defendants would get the opportunity to defend their case.
