A reminder that fishing expeditions and inexplicable delay will not be tolerated
In Banwaitt and Dewji (2013), the Claimant alleged that he had been induced to invest in a land deal in Cambodia through fraud or negligence. A week prior to trial, the Claimant made an application for specific disclosure of the names of other investors and emails between them and Defendant. The application was refused firstly because there was no good reason for the delay in making the application and secondly because the Claimants hope that the emails might offer evidence in support of his claim was a clear fishing expedition.
