Masters and Others v Leaver: CA 2 Sep 1999

A judgment obtained by default against a bankrupt in a foreign jurisdiction, was not sufficient evidence of itself, to establish that the debt which it proved had been obtained or created by fraud, or by a fraud to which they were a party. The party had been debarred from defending himself, and a finding on those terms could not mean that the debt should survive a bankruptcy here.
