Interim Payment Properly Ordered To A Non-Test Claimant In Group Litigation
Revenue & Customs Commissioners v. GKN Group, CA, 31/01/12
The Court of Appeal held that the Court had been entitled to make an interim payment to the Respondent, which was a party to the Franked Investment Income Group Litigation. The Court of Appeal held the Court should order an interim payment if it was satisfied that the conditions in CPR r. 25.7(1)(c) were fulfilled, unless there was a specific reason not to do so. The Court of Appeal held that the fact that the interim payment was being sought by a non-test claimant which was party to a Group Litigation Order did not amount to such reasons.
