In Re A Debtor (2672 of 2000): ChD 2 Nov 2000

More than six years after a costs order, the creditor began bankruptcy proceedings for unpaid costs. The debtor claimed the debt was time barred. The court found that the time started when the judgment became enforceable. As regards an order for costs, that happened only when the amount was fixed by taxation. The six year period had not expired with respect to that date.
