Windhorst –v- Levy

Tuesday 23rd November 2021

The appellant appeals against the order made by Eady J dated 6/5/21 refusing to set aside the registration of a judgment of the Bielefeld District Court, Germany, dated 10/3/03 and refused an application for a stay of enforcement of the 2003 judgment under CPR 83.7(4).

The 2003 Judgment was subject to a composition effected by order of the Local Court of Charlottenburg, Germany on 31/8/07.

This proposed appeal raises issues of principle as to the relationship between the EU Judgments Regulation and EU Insolvency Regulation, and how the Court should give effect to its obligation to recognise the Insolvency Plan.
