This Practice Note looks at summary judgment under Part 24 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), which is the way in which a litigation claim is determined by the court without a trial. It also looks at strike out under CPR 3.3–3.4, which can result in a litigation party’s statement of case being deleted—either in full or in part—which can have the effect of bringing the substantive proceedings to an end. This Practice Note briefly sets out who can apply for summary judgment or strike out, when such an application should be made, and whether a party is restricted from making an application in any particular circumstances. Produced in partnership with Paul Wright of 9 Stone Buildings.
