The claimant had brought proceedings against the two defendants in 2009. A private settlement was reached with the first defendant, but the second, a then bankrupt firm of solicitors took no part. The claimant now sought to restore the claima against the solicitors. It was now said that the claim should be dismissed on the basis that the claimant and the solicitors had acted dishonestly and there were no funds for payment of any damages, insurance cover having been repudiated.
