The spate of cases dealing with the question of whether a liquidator can treat the costs of any litigation that she initiates or pursues in the exercise of her statutory functions as a liquidation expense payable in priority to other creditors shows no sign of abating. This is hardly surprising bearing in mind that a number of issues were left unresolved by the Court of Appeal in Re Floor Fourteen Ltd, Lewis v Inland Revenue Commissioners. One such case, Re Demaglass Ltd, Lewis v Dempster is the subject of this note. The likely implications of the Insolvency (Amendment) (No. 2) Rules 2002 are also briefly considered.
