Maridive and Oil Services (SAE) and Another v CNA Insurance Company (Europe) Ltd: CA 25 Mar 2002

The Civil Procedure Rules have allowed the Courts to accept an amendment to introduce a cause of action arising out of facts occurring subsequent to the commencement of the proceedings. There is no absolute rule of law or practice which precludes an amendment to rely on a cause of action which accrued only after the date of the original claim in circumstances where (but for the amendment) the claim could fail.
