Sheikh and Another v Dogan and Others: ChD 17 Nov 2009

The judge had reserved his judgment, but had since received further voluminous representations from a party.
Held: None of the matters raised suggested a proper reason for exercising the jurisdiction given by In re Barrell. The claimant was subject to a civil restraint order, and these applications had been made without consent. Nor had she made them in a way which would allow the defendants to make their own representations on them.
