Miah v Jalil and another

Practice – Adjournment of proceedings. The judge had refused to adjourn proceedings on liability, had granted the claimant permission to amend his claim and entered judgment for the claimant. The defendants appealed on the basis that the judge's decisions had been unfair. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appeal, held that the judge had not attached proper weight to the fundamental point that the hearing had only been listed for remedies. Further, that the claimant had wished to proceed on an issue of law that had not been pleaded.
