Edgerton v Edgerton and another: [2012] EWCA Civ 181;  [2012] WLR (D)  47

“Where the High Court had made a final decision which was binding on the parties and conclusively determined the ownership of assets, the parties were estopped from arguing in proceedings in another division of the High Court that the ownership of the disputed assets was different. If one party wished to argue that the earlier decision should not bind the parties because it had been obtained by fraud or collusion, the proper course was to apply to set aside the first judgment.”
