Last month's practitioner's section reported the case of Kaneria v Kaneria  EWHC 1165 (Ch), in which it was held that Mitchell principles do not apply to in time applications for an extension of time. It was held that these applications should be decided by reference to the overriding objection [sic].
Hehe. That’s super. In my experience, litigation gives rise to a lot of ‘overriding objections’.
