Mayer Brown Legal Update
In Kovarska v Otkritie, the Court of Appeal upheld an application by Otkritie to set aside an earlier ex parte order of that court which had granted Ms Kovarska permission to appeal and had been decided on the papers. Citing serious misrepresentations and material non-disclosures, the Court of Appeal found that it had been misled and that there were compelling reasons to set aside its previous order.
