James v Evans: CA 2 Aug 2000

In appropriate cases it was proper for a court summarily to dispose of cases. If a party has no reasonable prospect of success, it is in accordance with the philosophy of the new rules to manage cases actively and to allot court time to cases with the need to deal justly with claims. In this case active management might have avoided a three day listing for a case which was eventually dismissed on the first day.
