The Court can yes under Civil Procedure Rule 3.4:
The court may strike out(GL) a statement of case if it appears to the court –
that the statement of case discloses no reasonable grounds for bringing or defending the claim;
that the statement of case is an abuse of the court’s process or is otherwise likely to obstruct the just disposal of the proceedings; or
that there has been a failure to comply with a rule, practice direction or court order.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
