Supreme Court dismisses appeal from High Court, and affirms order striking out an action seeking to set aside a 2009 agreement settling earlier litigation, on the grounds that the facts relied upon by the plaintiff were known to him at the time he entered into the 2009 agreement - with the benefit of legal advice - and his claim was bound to fail.
Irvine J (nem diss): Appeal from decision to strike out proceedings - whether bound to fail - claim of fraud and deception - settlement of earlier proceedings seeking possession of certain lands - loan to facilitate purchase of property - agreement - legal advice - failure to meet repayments - 2009 settlement - sale of lands - payment to lender - whether loan tainted with illegality - refusal to complete agreed sale - action to set aside 2009 agreement - jurisdiction of court to strike out action - abuse of process.
