We filed a civil claim in High Court Queen's Bench division with the following causes of action:
-Import executable Swiss money judgment to UK. This judgment is against a UK resident who is a convicted felon and fugitive hiding out in UK.
-Fraudulent transfer against family members of judgment debtor and UK business entity
- Unjust enrichment against the family members.
A deputy master dismissed our case based on an absurd pretext - that we did not provide a service address that complies with CPR 6.23. Strangely, this DM who dismissed the case was not even assigned to the case. A master was assigned to the case when we first filed it, and there is no indication how this case even ended up with this particular DM. In any case, we did provide the address of an EU lawyer (we live in Cyprus) as per CPR 6.23(2)(b), and we filed a notice of acting by that lawyer. The DM dismissed our case anyway without a hearing and with order for summary costs to be awarded. So we need to unwind this order and move on with our action. Specifically,
- Exact actions, including forms and all supporting documents to appeal or otherwise challenge the action
- Case law or statutory support for our position regarding the service address. We have done a lot of our own research and strongly believe that the DM's purported grounds for dismissing our case was incorrect.
