Judgments - Mulkerrins (formerly Woodward (FC)) (Appellant) v. Pricewaterhouse Coopers (a firm) (formerly trading as Coopers & Lybrand) (a firm) (Respondents)

(back to preceding text)

46. It was not necessary for the deputy judge to direct that the Official Receiver (who is now performing the residual functions of the trustee in bankruptcy) should be joined as a defendant to the proceedings. For these reasons and for the further reasons given in the speech of Lord Millett, with which I agree, I would allow the appeal and restore the deputy judge's order, other than his direction for joinder of the Official Receiver.
