Southwark London Borough Council v Onayomake

“It was a disproportionate exercise of power to strike out a defence and counterclaim based on substantial grounds in a possession action merely because the defendant’s legal representative had failed to file a check list and had been late for the court management hearing to explain the failure.”

WLR Daily, 22nd October 2007
