Cooke and another v Venulum Property Investments Ltd and others

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The claimants sought the continuation of a freezing order that had been made against the defendants to freeze money that could potentially have been used to cover the claimants' costs. The claimants made an application, seeking to have the freezing order extended. The Chancery Division held that the order would not be continued, as the court had never had jurisdiction to make a freezing order to secure the rights which the claimants might in due course acquire pursuant to an order for costs. Consequently, the order would not be continued and the action dismissed.
