1. On 19 June 2005, I set aside the judgment in default in this case that the Claimant had entered against the Defendants. One of the reasons for that decision, reported at  B.L.R. 478, was my view that there was a triable issue between the parties as to whether or not they had entered into a binding contract. I also expressed the view that this issue was straightforward and could be disposed of promptly by way of a preliminary issue.
