R (Edwards) v Environment Agency – WLR Daily

Posted April 22nd, 2008 in appeals, confidentiality, disclosure, judgments, law reports by sally

R (Edwards) v Environment Agency; [2008] WLR (D) 119

“When copies of draft speeches which the Law Lords proposed to deliver were provided in confidence, prior to the delivery of judgment, to the legal representatives of the parties to an appeal which had been heard, the purpose was to obtain help in correcting misprints, inadvertent errors of fact or ambiguities of expression. It was not intended to enable the case to be reargued, and any attempt to do so amounted to an abuse of the procedure of the House of Lords.”

Masri v Consolidated Contractors International UK Ltd and others (No 2) [2008] EWCA Civ 303; [2008] WLR (D) 97

“There was no reason why the court should not exercise a power to appoint a receiver by way of equitable execution over future receipts from a defined asset. Applications for the appointment of a receiver over foreign debts and ancillary orders did not constitute proceedings concerned with the enforcement of judgments within the meaning of article 22(5) of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001.”
