McGuinness v Norwich and Peterborough Building Society  EWCA Civ 1286,  BPIR 145 (Court of Appeal, Ward, Moses and Patten LJJ, 9 November 2011)
Briggs J had held that the terms of a guarantee in favour of the Society, making the guarantor's liability concurrent with that of the principal debtor, provided for a liability ‘for a liquidated sum' within the meaning of s 267(2)(b) of the Insolvency Act 1986 rather than a liability to pay unliquidated damages, and thus could found a bankruptcy order (see  EWHC 2989 (Ch),  BPIR 213).
