Lack of list of issues for disclosure does not bar specific disclosure under DPS
United Kingdom | 23 February 2021

According to a recent case, the High Court can order specific disclosure under the Disclosure Pilot Scheme, even where there is no agreed or approved list of issues for disclosure. The decision provides clarification as to the court's jurisdiction to vary orders for extended disclosure. It also confirms that where parties have yet to agree a list of issues for disclosure, it will not prevent the court from making an order to vary a pre-existing order for extended disclosure.
