ORDER TO SIT IN PRIVATE
TO BE PUBLISHED PURSUANT TO CPR 39.2(5
UPON the application of the Second Defendant for an order pursuant to CPR 39.2 that part of the hearing of the parties’ application for an order pursuant to CPR 19.7(6) approving the compromise of the Claimants’ Part 7 Claim dated 1 August 2017 should be heard in private
AND UPON HEARING Andrew Spink QC on behalf of the Claimants, Michael Tennet QC on behalf of the First Defendant and James Clifford on behalf of the Second Defendant
AND UPON THE COURT being satisfied pursuant to CPR 39.2(3) that that it is necessary to sit in private for part of the hearing to secure the proper administration of justice and that that part of the hearing involves confidential and privileged information and that publicity would damage that confidentiality and would defeat the object of the hearing in the event that the court did not approve the proposed compromise
IT IS ORDERED BY CONSENT THAT:
(1) those parts of the hearing in which discussion of the merits of the proposed compromise from the point of view of the represented classes, that is to say the classes who it is proposed should be represented by the Claimants and the First Defendant respectively, should take place in private and in the absence of the other parties.
(2) Pursuant to CPR 39.2(5) a copy of this order shall be published on the website of the Judiciary of England and Wales (which may be found at www.judiciary.uk). Any person who is not a party to the proceedings may apply on notice to all the parties to attend the hearing and make submissions, or to vary or set aside this order.
(3) This Order will be served by the solicitors for the Claimants on the other parties.
