James v Havering LBC

[2007] EWHC 2168 (QB) 2007-10-01

Claim concerning CPR transitional stay provisions.  Stale claim by litigants in person. Inadequately pleaded particulars of claim.  Summary judgment (which had been entered against the local authority back in 1995) would have been set aside and claim struck out had it not fallen foul of the automatic stay provisions which rendered it a nullity in any event and the sumary judgment was not enforceable.  Angus Piper appeared for the local authority.
