Thompson v Grimsby Health Authority And Others: CA 30 Apr 1997

The applicant recovered damages from a driver, but then claimed further damages, over a protracted series of cases, from the health authority where she had been treated. She sought leave to appeal out of time against an order striking out her claim on the ground that it disclosed no cause of action, and was frivolous and vexatious, and that, having been ordered to file a medical report supporting her claim she had failed to produce one. When eventually one was produced, it did not go to support her claim.
