The judgment concerned an application dated 11 October 2021 (“the Application”) by which the Defendant, Mark Bamford sought to strike out the Claim Form (and in so far as relevant the Particulars of Claim) pursuant to CPR 3.4 (2) (a), on the basis that the statement of case of the Claimant (“Contra”) disclosed no reasonable grounds for bringing the claim. Alternatively, the Defendant sought “reverse” summary judgment under CPR 24.2 (a) (i), contending that the Claimant has no real prospect of succeeding on the claim.
