Carr and others v Formation Group plc and others

Limitation of action – Action. The first defendant was successful in achieving a summary disposal of parts of the fourteenth claimant's claims, on the ground that the claims were statute-barred. The Chancery Division held that, by amending the original claim form to remove references to certain claims, the fourteenth claimant had lost his right to rely on those claims, whether in the original claim form or in the subsequent claim form which had been issued after the limitation period had ended.
