Otuo v Morley and another

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. In a case of slander brought by the claimant, a 'disfellowshipped' Jehovah's Witness, against the defendants (also Jehovah's Witnesses), the Queen's Bench dismissed an appeal by the defendants against a master's refusal to strike out the claim on the basis that cases for slander were fact specific and unsuitable for summary disposal unless clear cut.
