Note that it does not seem settled whether Pillar or Piller is the correct spelling -- a cursory Google search shows a 3 - 1 preference for the 'er' spelling. Arwel 18:44, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC) I agree. While Pillar is often used in recent "internet news coverage", it has also appeared in documents at sites such as the UK Patents Office. Could be due to spell-check software? Zigger 19:06, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC) Well I saw it in newspapers years ago with "ar" spelling, which is why I originally wrote the article like that! Arwel 19:29, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)
- Although the above comments are a bit old, to clarify - the case name is reported with the 'Piller' spelling, so that is what should be used, irrespective of whether the party name was spelt the other way. SM247My Talk 03:25, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Three step test
Denning MR said: "It seems to me that such an Order can be made by a Judge ex parte, but it should only be made where it is essential that the plaintiff should have inspection so that justice can be done between the parties: and when, if the defendant were forewarned, there is a grave danger that vital evidence will be destroyed, the papers will be burnt or lost or hidden, or taken beyond the jurisdiction, and so the ends of justice be defeated: and when the inspection would do no real harm to the defendant or his case."
and Ormrod LJ said: "There are three essential pre-conditions for the making of such an Order, in my judgment. First, there must be an extremely strong prima facie case. Secondly, the damage, potential or actual, must be very serious for the applicant. Thirdly, there must be clear evidence that the defendants have in their possession incriminating documents or things, and that there is a real possibility that they may destroy such material before any application inter partes can be made."
