RULES

A technical point

The survival of this claim depends upon whether

the claimant can resist the point made by Mr. McBean. There

is no question of filing a new claim if the defendant

succeeds. If the preliminary point is successful the

defendant would be able to scurry away with both the

outstanding professional fees as well as the benefit of the

claimant's work.
