JUDGMENT

HIS HONOUR: This is application pursuant to rule 189 of the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules made by the plaintiff seeking the withdrawal of a deemed admission that was made by not answering a notice to admit facts, delivered on the 21st of August 2003.

The reason for not answering the notice to admit facts is explained as an oversight by the plaintiff's solicitors. The principal solicitor who had the carriage of the matter was overseas when the document was served and its presence was not noticed on return and the time for responding to the notice passed before the true situation was known.

The party who has most to gain from the admission was the second defendant and the second defendant has agreed to allow the deemed admission to be withdrawn in appreciation of the circumstances in which the oversight occurred.

The other defendants have expressed, in correspondence, no interest in the outcome of the application.

In those circumstances, I should exercise my discretion to allow the plaintiff to withdraw the deemed admission. I will make orders in terms of the consent order initialled by me and placed with the papers.
