Bass v Ministry of Defence: QBD 5 Jun 2018

Applications brought by the claimants under section 41 of the County Courts Act 1984 for orders transferring their claims from the Central London County Court to the High Court. Such applications are usually straightforward; indeed, they are usually dealt with by consent. But these raise issues concerning the interplay of sections 41 and 42 of the CCA 1984 and the correct interpretation of CPR r 30.3(3). They also touch more generally on the relationship between judges of the High Court and the County Court.
