Dispute Resolution analysis: This decision concerned applications for summary judgment and strike out. It provides an example of how the courts apply the ‘no real prospect of success’ test in relation to an application for summary judgment pursuant to CPR 24.2(a). Moreover, the case is particularly interesting in its consideration of an application to strike out under CPR 3.4(2)(b) and its discussion of the guidelines set down in Aldi Stores Ltd v WSP Group Plc relating to abuse of process.
