Lilley v Euromoney Institutional Investor Plc & Anor [2014] EWHC 2364 (Ch)

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  16 July 2014


Lindsay Lane  appeared for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), a defendant in one of a number of actions brought by Victor Lilley, a litigant in person. Mr Lilley alleged copyright infringement in relation to articles originally published in journals in the late 1990s on the ground that they had been placed on the internet without his consent.
CIMA made an application to strike out the remainder of his claim, parts of it having already been struck out at an earlier hearing before Roth J. Mr Lilley had failed to comply with an order of Roth J to provide further information in relation to the remainder of his claim. Mr Lilley applied to have the order of Roth J set aside.
Birss J refused Mr Lilley’s application and CIMA secured their strike out on the basis that Roth J’s order had not been complied with and, without further particulars, there were no reasonable grounds for bringing the claim. Birss J also made an extended Civil Restraint Order against Mr Lilley.
Lindsay Lane was instructed by Collyer Bristow.
