Scobie v Fairview Land Ltd

Citation: EWHC 147 Lawtel TCC

Nature of case:
The court held that amendments to particulars of claim ought in general to be allowed unless there was prejudice to the other party which could not be compensated by a costs order or harm to the administration of justice.  Scobie was thus allowed the amendments applied for.  Fairview’s objection that an expert’s quantum report should be excluded as too late and incomprehensible was rejected; clarification could be obtained from the expert if needed.  Fairview did manage to get certain items in the Scott Schedule struck out.
