Dispute Resolution analysis: The Chancery Division has agreed to lift a stay on a claim which had been automatically stayed under CPR 15.11 on grounds that there was an explanation for the delay, the claim had real prospects of success and there was no obvious prejudice to the other party. The court also considered authority on the question of amending a claim to add a new cause of action where limitation was not an issue, and permitted such an amendment, holding that there was nothing in the CPR that prevented this.
