Claverton Holdings Ltd v Barclays Bank plc

Disclosure and inspection of documents – Order for disclosure. The Commercial Court dismissed applications by the claimant company for specific disclosure and further information from the defendant, Barclays Bank plc, against which a claim had been brought for allegedly mis-selling an interest rate swap. The court was not satisfied that the documents would be relevant and, therefore, admissible as similar fact evidence. Further, to require Barclays to undertake the search and disclosure exercise proposed would be disproportionate and oppressive.
