PBS v Bester (enforcement appeal – CA)

Citation: [2020] EWCA Civ 404

The Claimant (PBS) appealed against the order of Pepperall J dismissing PBS’s application for summary judgment of an adjudicator’s decision on grounds of arguable fraud in procuring the decision.  PBS submitted that there was a requirement to plead fraud in a Defence, and that the Court ought of its own motion have imposed a stay of execution.  The appeal was unanimously dismissed.

Tom Owen appeared for the successful Respondent, led by Steven Walker QC and instructed by Rebecca Williams of Watson Farley and Williams.
