Jonathan Titmuss has had success in the Court of Appeal in Popinder Kaur Dhillon (by her litigation friend) v Yaw Asiedu  EWCA Civ 1020, defeating an appeal against the refusal of the judge below to adjourn a five-day trial on the first morning as a result of the Appellant’s incapacity, against a background of contumelious neglect in the preparation for trial.
The interesting point is an effort by the Court of Appeal to bring together the two ostensibly conflicting strands of authority on the proper approach the appeal Court should take to an appeal against a refusal of an application to adjourn a trial.
