QRS (on behalf of himself and as a representative for others) v Beach and another

Judgment – Default judgment. The claimant solicitor brought an action for an injunction to restrain the defendants from continuing allegedly harassing conduct by the publication of serious allegations on websites, including one known as 'solicitorsfromhell.co.uk'. The claimant obtained judgment in default of acknowledgement of service. The second defendant applied to set aside that judgment. The Queen's Bench Division, in allowing the application, held that, on the facts, it was just to exercise the court's discretion to set aside the default judgment and final injunction against the second defendant.
