Zacaroli J exercised his discretion to reverse his previous decision in a dispute relating to equipment left at a factory upon disclaimer of a lease.

Gary Blaker QC acted for the successful defendants and persuaded the judge to reverse his decision.

The court refused to order delivery up of property left at the factory premises holding there is a triable issue whether the items are tenant’s fixtures rather than chattels.
