Roger Charles Maddock v American Leisure Group Limited
Roger Charles Maddock v American Leisure Group Limited [2015 EWHC 1913 (CH)]. Ian Croxford QC and Clare Stanley QC acted for the successful applicant setting aside service of a $100 million + damages claim.
The judgment provides welcome clarification of the interplay between the common law rules on submission to the jurisdiction and the deemed statutory submission in CPR 11(5) , and the circumstances in which a defendant may obtain an extension of time to make a r. 11(5) application (in this case nearly a year out of time).
