Littlefair, Williamson, and Beardall v Vinamul Ltd: CA 1 Feb 2006

The parties had been involved in personal injury litigation, which the defendants said had been compromised on a drop hands basis. The claimants wished to go ahead.
Held: The parties legal representatives had not sufficiently recorded their dealings. However notes on both sides of telephone conversations spelled out that the claimants were not proceedings with claims for one aspect of their injury, and that claim could not proceed.
