The legal action dragged on due to changes in lawyers, appeals and associated actions.
After the legal action concluded various professional advisors were sued; counter-sued; and sued again.
The list of legal actions following the original case is immense including a recalled insolvency petition and the removal of assorted liquidators.
The lawyers for the successful litigant have only just had a judgement in their favour for the balance of the legal fees, some 20 years on. There may still, of course, be an appeal.
Jarndyce v Jarndyce it was not; but I suspect it is going to appear in the legal text books when it finally finishes.
