Michael Wilson and Partners v Sinclair

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The Queen's Bench Division dismissed an appeal by the claimant against a decision of a master exercised under CPR 3.1(2)(f) ordering the stay of execution of an order registering seven foreign judgments as High Court judgments. The court held that it could not be said that once a judgment became liable to execution, an application for stay could only be made outside CPR 3.1, or that CPR 3.1 was ousted by one or other of CPR 83.7 or CPR 40.8A.
