Harper and Another v Hopkins: EAT 6 Aug 2009

EAT (Appeal From Order : Out of Time) Appellate jurisdiction reasons Burns-Barke – The lodging of a Notice of Appeal out of time was a conscious decision by a Respondent hotelier to leave it until after the New Year. His intervening hospitalisation did not overcome this original decision. Anyway it did not explain why his partner did not do so. There were no grounds for the exercise of discretion.
