In this matter before Mr Justice Bourne, Howard Stevens QC (instructed by MB Law) acted for the Additional Party.
Mr Justice Bourne: “On 4 December 2019 the First Defendant (“OTB”) sought to serve an additional claim under CPR Part 20 on the Part 20 Defendant, Meeting Point Youtravel Tourism LLC (“Meeting Point”) at an address in London. Meeting Point now applies for an order setting aside the purported service and declaring that the Court has no jurisdiction to try the Part 20 claim, or in the alternative an order deciding that the Court will not exercise its jurisdiction. In the event that Meeting Point succeeds, OTB makes a cross-application for permission to effect service by one of the methods specified under CPR 6.12 or 6.15 or 6.36 and 6.37, or an order dispensing with service under CPR 6.16.”
