Taylor v Nugent Care Society (formerly Catholic Social Services, Liverpool)




LTL 19/1/2004; (2004) 1 WLR 1129; (2004) 3 All ER 671; [2004] EWCA Civ 51; Times, January 28, 2004; Independent, January 22, 2004 2004-01-19

It was not an abuse of process of the court for a claimant to proceed with his claim notwithstanding that he had commenced proceedings that raised issues covered by a group litigation order and was refused permission to join the group action out of time. If the claimant brought proceedings that ran parallel to the group action, the court was entitled to manage the proceedings in a way that took account of directions enforced upon the parties to the group action.
