Nick Goodfellow successful in committal and debarring application in fraud claim

Domestic & General Group Ltd v Domestic Assist Ltd and Mr Matthew Scott [2019] 11 WLUK 119

Nick Goodfellow appeared for D&G in an application to commit Mr Scott to prison for breach of an order obliging Mr Scott to provide information in an affidavit and for knowingly making a false statement in that affidavit.

Margaret Obi (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge) held that Mr Scott was in contempt of court and that Mr Scott and Domestic Assist were debarred from defending the liability claims against them. A sentence of six months imprisonment was imposed, suspended on terms that the sentence would be activated if Mr Scott breaches any court order in the next 12 months.

The case is reported on Westlaw.
