Mitchell Round Up

By | 14th January 2014

In the wake of the Mitchell case, my attention has been drawn to a really useful updater blog posted by barrister Gordon Exall, which currently lists the decisions in five subsequent cases around the country, all of which feature some kind of sanction or relief from sanction for procedural breach.

The post is entitled Mitchell: Case Watch and the cases currently listed are:

  • Durrant -v- The Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Constabulary [2013] EWCA Civ 1624
  • Addlington and 113 others -v- Els International LLP (2013)
  • SG DP Petrol SRL -v- Vitrol SA [2013] EWHC 3920
  • Norseman Holdings Ltd -v- Warwick Court (Harrold Hill) Management Company Ltd [2013] EWHC 3868
  • Forstater and Mark Forstater Productions Ltd -v- Python (Monty) Pictures Ltd and Freeway Cam (UK) Ltd [2013] EWHC 3759

Each section includes the Bailii or other case reference, the brief facts and the salient parts of the judgments which indicate how the principles in Mitchell are being applied. The piece also contains links to the case reports in each case.

Gordon Exall says that his Case Watch is going to be updated as new cases happen, so it is certainly worth making a note of the above link if you want to keep up to date with developments in this important area of practice and procedure.
