A Portal admission is binding to the World
Chimel v Chibwana & Williams
HHJ Simpkiss, Reigate CC, 31st October 2016
This first tier appeal directly resolved the position of the two inconsistent first instance decisions of Ullah v Jon and Malak v Nasim on whether an admission in the Portal is binding outside the Portal, and concurs with the almost accidental finding of the same in Maddocks v Lyne.
The court confirmed that a Portal admission is binding to the world, i.e. both in and outside of the Portal.
