Al-Ani v Shubber: CA 10 May 1999

The claimant sought leave to appeal an order refusing his application for assets to be released from an injunction obtained by his former solicitors to preserve assets against their claim for costs. The court deprecated the fact that a relatively minor defamation action had been allowed to generate considerable satellite litigation.
Held: the orders had been made properly and the request for leave to appeal failed.
