Judge slams blatant dishonesty

A High Court Judge has said that a costs judgement against a dishonest party should act as a deterrent to others considering deceiving the Court.

Sir Peter Singer said the husband in a divorce settlement case, named as Clive Joy-Morancho, should pay all of Nichola Joy’s costs for proceedings since May 2013 – amounting to around £334,000, to be paid without 14 days.

In Joy v Joy-Morancho & Ors, the Judge said the husband’s conduct in trying to explain his financial circumstances amounted to ‘blatant dishonesty’
