HOME GROUP LTD v MPS HOUSING LTD
 EWHC 1946 (TCC), Technology and Construction Court, Constable J, 25 July 2023
Adjudication – Breach of the principles of natural justice – Enforcement – Evidence – Expert report – Volume of material in evidence
The claimant sought to enforce the decision of an adjudicator, while the defendant sought to resist enforcement on the ground that there had been a breach of natural justice which was caused by the volume of material in evidence in the adjudication, the lack of time to consider that evidence and difficulties in gaining access to the evidence necessary to defend the claim which had been brought against it. Constable J rejected the submissions advanced on behalf of the defendant and held that the claimant was entitled to enforce the decision of the adjudicator.
