Strike out

The Court has the power to “strike out” (i.e. dismiss) all or part of a party’s statement of case. The Court may make an order for strike out in circumstances where a party is pursuing or defending a case that has no reasonable basis or to prevent proceedings for abuse of process.

An application for strike out can also be used in the context of witness statements and expert reports. For example, the Court may decide to strike out certain paragraphs of an expert report if they are irrelevant or go beyond the scope of the expert’s permitted topic.

We’re produced an article further exploring strike out for more information.
