Dispute Resolution analysis: John Bignall, barrister at 7 King’s Bench Walk, considers the case of Financial Conduct Authority v Da Vinci Invest Ltd  EWHC 2220 (Ch). This was an application by a defendant for relief from the automatic dismissal of his application to set aside judgment against him. The judge refused to grant relief, applying the three-stage test in Mitchell v News Group Newspapers as restated in Denton v TH White. The case provides an example of the court’s approach to such applications, in particular the consideration of the prospects of the application subject to automatic dismissal being successful.
