Infantino v Maclean: QBD 20 Jul 2001

Where a court could no longer grant an extension of time for service of proceedings under rule 7.6, a court could, in appropriate circumstances, achieve the desired result by dispensing with service under rule 6.9. Here the parties had long been in negotiation, and the receiving party knew entirely of the document which was to be served. The case was complicated, and the claimant’s solicitors had otherwise gone well beyond the requirements of the rules in working with the defendant’s solicitors.
