APPLICATION TO AMEND STATEMENT OF CASE, RULE 20.4 OF THE CIVIL

PROCEDURE RULES

SYKES J.

1.0n February 28 I granted the application of Miss Gillian Mullings. These are the

reasons for my decision.

2.Albert Slmpson leased premlses located at shops 11 - 15 Island Plaza, Ocho Rios in

the parish of St. Ann from Island Resources Llmlted. He claims that there was a

breach of the lease agreement wh~c:h precipitated this claim. The breach alleged is

of an Implied term that the shop would be water tight so that if rain fell the shop

would not be flooded. I t IS alleged that there were heavy rains in May 2002 and the

lack of water tightness resulted in damage to property and loss of income and loss

of profit.

C, 3.Miss Mullings has applied to add the words and f~gure in the sum of $7,500,000.00

to the particulars of claim as the sum representing loss of income. According to her

this was an oversight.

4.Rule 20.4 of the Civil Procedure Rules ("CPR") says:

(I) An application for permission to amend a statement of

case may be made at the case management

conference.

(2) Statements of ca:re may only be amended after a case
