Brown and Another v Bennett and Others (2): ChD 13 Jun 2000

The decision whether to order sequential or simultaneous disclosure of skeleton arguments was for each case. In construction cases simultaneous disclosure was usually appropriate, and this was also normal in Chancery. Nevertheless in complicated cases it might be sensible and was within the judge’s discretion to order sequential disclosure, with the claimant going first. The rules are silent because of this discretion.
