Putjotik Fisheries Ltd. v. The “Mersey Viking”

In Admiralty Practice, Delay and Time Extensions on (Updated )

In this matter the Court dismissed the action of the Plaintiff for undue delay. In dismissing the action the Court agreed with the Defendant that the Plaintiff had demonstrated a lack of interest in advancing the claim both prior to and subsequent to a status review. In particular, the Plaintiff failed to produce a meaningful affidavit of documents as required by the status review order and failed to make arrangements for examinations for discovery by the date specified in the status review order.
