Federal Appeal


Statement of claim

Action was struck as disclosing no reasonable cause of action

Plaintiff D brought action in Federal Court, claiming right not to work while being afforded reasonable standard of living. Action was struck as disclosing no reasonable cause of action, with this finding being upheld on appeal. D appealed from Federal Court judgment. Appeal dismissed. D’s claim on appeal that she owned share of Consolidated Revenue Fund could not succeed. Previous claims were properly dismissed, as there was no basis in law for them.
