30th May 2022

Paul McGrath (instructed by Nasreen Rehman of Plexus Law) succeeded in defeating a claim for c. £145,000 hire charges on the basis that the Claimant’s own vehicle had been driven illegally (without a valid MoT). The Judge (HHJ Lethem, Central London CC), in a reserved judgment, undertook a comprehensive review of the relevant authorities and accepted Paul’s submissions and dismissed the entire claim for hire charges on grounds of causation and illegality: Agbalaya (available on Westlaw).
