BROOKS, J.

Recording the title of this claim was not the least of the challenges

which it presented. The claim started life with one title and ended, in this

Judgnlent Summons before me, with quite another. The genesis of the

present summons is an order of Chester Orr, J. made on 3 1" July 1990. That

order was made as a result of complaints by Mrs. Norma Butler about Mr.

Radcliffe Butler's handling of the affairs of their family company Norcliffe

Limited. The Butlers each held 50% of the shareholding in the company.
