Royal Bank of Scotland v Abraham - Strike-out for non-compliance with order applies to whole claim [2009] EAT

Strike-out for non-compliance with order applies to whole claim: even where there has been partial compliance there is no power to allow part of a claim to proceed. 

Mrs Abraham brought claims of sex discrimination and unfair dismissal. She failed to comply with orders requiring the provision of a schedule of loss and certain further particulars. An Unless Order was made, stipulating that the Schedule of Loss and particulars should be provided by a set date, and those particulars should show why the claims should not be struck out.
