Divisional Court Judgment on committal proceedings

Marcus Grant appeared for one of the Applicants seeking guidance from the Divisional Court on the procedural steps and evidential thresholds required to be satisfied by insurers in bringing committal proceedings against dishonest litigants who verify documents with statements of truth knowing that their content is untrue in a material way. This judgment should remove much of the mystique about the quasi civil quasi criminal jurisdiction and provide much needed guidance to the profession.
