*Deutsche Bank AG and others v Unitech Global Ltd and others

Practice – Summary judgment. The claimant bank was granted summary judgment upon its claim against the defendant, relying on the issue estoppel created by the court in an earlier judgment in the proceedings. In light of a subsequent decision by the Court of Appeal, it had become apparent that there was no such issue estoppel. Accordingly, the parties returned to the Commercial Court. The claimant sought that the court require the defendants to pay a sum of money into court or to make an interim payment to the claimant. The Commercial Court declined to order an interim payment or that a sum of money be paid into court.
