Application for Permission to Appeal in ‘Gertner’

CFL Finance Ltd, has applied to the Supreme Court for permission to appeal in CFL Finance Ltd v Gertner [2021] EWCA Civ 228, concerning the issue of what is ‘credit’ in the context of an agreement by way of Tomlin Order.

The proposed grounds of appeal are: (i) the CA erred as to the correct test for whether a settlement agreement provides credit within the meaning of the CCA 1974 and (ii) the CA erred in determining whether there was a triable issue on the question of credit (and consequently Judge Briggs should have dismissed the bankruptcy petition).

A summary of the CA’s decision may be read here.
