Patterson (trustee in bankruptcy of George Spencer) v Spencer and others

Practice – Striking out. In the course of proceedings, the appellant was required to provide documentation by an order of the court. She failed to do so, and her claim was struck out. The appellant applied for relief from sanctions under CPR 3.9(1). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the instant circumstances were another instance of a history of delay and non-compliance by the appellant, and that the justice of the case did not require her to be granted relief from sanctions. The application would be dismissed.
