Experts see the strength of E&Y’s evidence as crucial in determining whether the trial goes ahead as planned in April next year or is settled earlier, reports the Mail on Sunday.

The Big Four firm was in court last week in an attempt to get some of Equitable’s expert evidence withdrawn from the case. While E&Y failed in its attempts, Mr Justice Langley described the hearing as ‘a bit of a draw’ and maintained that some of Equitable’s evidence needed ‘clarification’.
