Anglia Research Services, a leading genealogical research company, and its director Philip Turvey, have obtained a pre-action disclosure order against Finders International and its Managing Director Daniel Curran  (a regular participant in the BBC’s “Heir Hunters” programme) over an alleged dirty tricks campaign by Mr Curran and Finders.

The case is of considerable interest on the subject of the High Court’s pre-action disclosure jurisdiction in defamation, in which there had been no reported decision for over a decade.
