Tasarruf Mevduati Sigorta Fonu v Demirel and another [2007] EWCA Civ 799

The court had power under CPR r 6.20(9) to permit service outside the jurisdiction of a claim to enforce a foreign judgment where the defendant, who lived abroad, had no assets in the jurisdiction. Ordinarily it would not be just to permit service outside the jurisdiction unless there was a real prospect of a legitimate benefit to the claimant from the English proceedings.”

Marcan Shipping (London) Ltd. v. Candida Corpn and another [2007] EWCA Civ 463

“The sanction embodied in an “unless” order in traditional form took effect without the need for any further order if the party to whom it was addressed failed to comply with it in any material respect. Unless the party in default had applied for relief, or the court itself decided for some exceptional reason that it should act of its own initiative, the question whether the sanction ought to apply did not arise.”
