The claimants Veronica Marks and Nicholas Brown have had their real property,

situated in St. Ann, sold by the mortgagee thereof under powers of sale contained in a

mortgage. Mr. Loxley Thompson was the mortgagee. The claimants have sued him, the

purchaser N & N Investment Ltd, and its principal Ernest Allen. The Claimants allege

that the sale was illegal. Their claim is that the Defendants pay damages to compensate

them for financial loss incurred.

When the claim came on for case management the Defendants made two

applications; Mr. Thompson applied to set aside a default judgment against him and the

2nd and 3rd defendants applied to strike out the claim as against them. I shall deal with

each application in turn.
