Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.

On Monday 15 until Thursday 18 May, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Reyes v Al Malki & Anor. This appeal will consider whether, firstly, the Employment Tribunal has jurisdiction to hear claims brought by the Appellant, under the exception to diplomatic immunity contained in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961, art 31(1)(c). Secondly, it will consider whether the Respondents were validly served with proceedings. This will be heard in Courtroom 2.

On Wednesday 17 May, the Supreme Court will hand down the judgment in the cases of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc v Lomas & Ors, The Joint Administrators of LB Holdings Intermediate2 Ltd v Lehman Brothers Holding Inc & Ors, and Lehman Brothers Ltd (In Administration) v Lehman Brothers International (Europe) (In Administration). The hand down panel will be Lord Neuberger, Lord Kerr and Lord Sumption. These appeals considered the proper ranking of certain subordinated debt in the insolvency ‘waterfall’, and whether the creditors of a company in administration whose provable claims are denominated in a foreign currency are entitled to payment of the balance of such claims which remains outstanding due to a decline in the value of sterling against the  currency of the claim between the commencement of the administration and the dates of dividend distributions, and, if so, the proper ranking of such claims. The appeals also considered whether statutory interest accruing but unpaid during a company’s administration is payable in that company’s subsequent liquidation and the scope of liability of members in an unlimited company under the Insolvency Act 1986, s 74, amongst other issues.

A full list of the cases scheduled for the Easter term can be found here.
