Abstract

Once a staple of the reports, cy-près cases are now a rarity. In this context, Attorney General v Zedra Fiduciary Services Ltd (UK) [2020] EWHC 2988 (Ch.) provided a welcome opportunity for the judicial analysis and development of the modern doctrine, as contemporary cases are now largely settled behind closed doors by the Charity Commission through its administrative processes. This fresh judicial authority is important, not only because of its striking facts, but also because it should influence Commission decision-making in future cases.

Keywords: Equity, Charity, Zedra
