Denekamp v Denekamp: CA 8 Dec 2005

The claimant sought leave to appeal against an order striking out his claim, a civil restrain order and dismissal of his claim for the defendant’s legal team be debarred from acting, being, he said, in contempt.
Held: Leave was refused: ‘I am in no doubt at all that these defendants are after all these years of fruitless litigation entitled to some peace of mind and some halt to the ceaseless pursuit by Mr Denekamp of his misconceived complaints against them. Far from the judge being wrong he was in my judgment obviously right. The way he floods me with paper confirms the view that the deluge must stop. This is an utterly hopeless application which must be dismissed. ‘
