‘Warehousing’ not automatically an abuse of process (Alibrahim v Asturion Foundation)


CA 1448 – Alibrahim v Asturion Foundation [2020] EWCA Civ 32

The recent case of Alibrahim v Asturion Foundation provides clarification in respect of the practice known as warehousing, that is to say, a party unilaterally placing legal proceedings on hold without the agreement of the other side or order of the court. The Court of Appeal unanimously held that such a practice would not automatically amount to an abuse of process such that the claim was liable to be struck out.
