Vekaria v Jackson

[2009] EWHC 1514 (Ch)


A litigant was granted leave to commence proceedings in deceit against the trustee in bankruptcy where the bankrupt, had, by alleged perjury, secured a judgment debt against her. Although the bankrupt had the benefit of judgment estoppel the alleged cause of action in deceit was complete before the commencement of the bankruptcy and thus was a bankruptcy debt pursuant to the Insolvency Act 1986 s.382(1)(a).
