Matthew acted for the 1st Defendant in an appeal against a judge’s decision of dismissing appeal against Master’s decision (dismissing application for striking out under the ground of “without prejudice” privilege) (led by Mr. C.Y. Li S.C.). Having heard the argument for the parties, the Court of Appeal consider that the appeal is reasonably arguable and therefore give leave to appeal, but the appeal is dismissed.
