Zumax Nigeria Ltd v First City Monument Bank plc

Practice – Extension of time. The claimant company brought proceedings against the defendant bank, contending that the bank had made unauthorised transferrals of its money. The claimant was given permission to serve the claim form out of the jurisdiction. The defendant did not challenge the service at the time, but later sought permission from the English court for an extension of time to apply to challenge the jurisdiction of the court. The Chancery Division held that no good reason had been shown for the failure to apply in time for an extension of time, and dismissed the application.
