In the High Court on 1st October 2018 Mr Justice Max Barrett made an Order joining a
motor insurer as a Third Party in circumstances where a Plaintiff’s claim had been initially
notified to and investigated under the Employers Liability/Public Liability Policy. In arriving
at his decision to join the motor insurer to the action as a Third Party, Mr Justice Barrett
referred to the judgement of Mr Justice Lavery in Gilmore v. Windle [1967] IR 323, 329:

“to avoid multiplicity of actions and to enable, so far as can be done with just regard
to the interests of the several parties involved, all issues arising out of the
particular incident or transaction to be determined by the one court at one time;
thus avoiding repetition of evidence and argument before different tribunals”
