Dexter Ltd (In Administrative Receivership) v Harley: ChD 2 Apr 2001

Money was transferred wrongfully out of the company, and then on again into the hands of the respondent. She received the money, and knew of its fraudulent provenance, but all her acts were committed outside the jurisdiction.
Held: It was not sufficient that the original act in breach of trust occurred within the jurisdiction, the claimant had to show that some act of the defendant had occurred here, if she was to be sued here.
