Practice – Service out of the jurisdiction. The second defendant issued committal proceedings against the claimant companies and their director for breach of their duties to make full disclosure on their without notice application and failure to comply with an undertaking. The judge held that service of the committal proceedings out of the jurisdiction was authorised by CPR 6.36 and para 3.1(3) of Practice Direction 6B. The director appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had been correct to find that service out of the jurisdiction on the director was permitted.
