Elliott Group Ltd. v GECC UK Ltd
Citation: EWHC 409 (TCC)
Nature of case:
The court had to reconsider the grounds for allowing parties to an adjournment in order to deal with more extensive disclosure and participate in ADR. Coulson J said that it would require a very strong case for a trial to be adjourned merely because a party’s disclosure was a more extensive task than was originally contemplated and the opportunity to allow parties to litigation to settle a case was not in itself a good enough reason for an adjournment of a fixed trial date.
