Gaydamak v Leliev

Practice – Striking out. A claim had already been issued by G, the claimant, against L, the defendant, and dismissed. G sought to bring a new claim, raising, among other things, a trusts argument. L applied to strike out the new claim. The Chancery Division held that, among other things, a form of cause of action estoppel would apply, and it would be an abuse to allow the proceedings to continue.
