Barton v Wright Hassall LLP 2018

This case concerned an appeal by a litigant in person against a refusal by the County Court to treat his service of a Claim Form by email as good service when the recipient solicitors had not agreed to accept service of proceedings by email. He failed at every stage lastly in the Supreme Court. The decision can be treated as authority for the argument that service by email will only be good where the recipient has expressly agreed to accept service in this way.
