Disproportionate exercise of judicial power

Lambeth London Borough Council v Onayomake

Court of Appeal

“Where a counterclaim had been made on substantial grounds in a possession action, it was a disproportionate exercise of judicial power to strike out a defence and counterclaim when the defendant’s legal representative had failed to file a check list on time.”
