In the Supreme Court w/c 3 October 2016
03 Monday Oct 2016
Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.
On Wednesday 5 October and Thursday 6 October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal in AMT Futures Ltd v Marzillier & Ors, which requires the court to consider whether the English Court has jurisdiction to try the case under Brussels I (Regulation No 44/2001). The appellants wish to claim injunctive relief and damages in tort for inducement of breach of contract against the respondent, a German law firm, for allegedly inducing the appellant’s former clients to issue proceedings in Germany, in breach of a contractual clause which bestowed exclusive jurisdiction where disputes arose on the English courts. This will be heard in Court 2 from 11am.
On Wednesday 5 October, the Privy Council will hear the appeal in Maharaj v Manning (Prime Minister and Head of Cabinet) (Trinidad and Tobago). The issue that arises is whether the Court of Appeal in Trinidad and Tobago ought to have awarded damage when allowing an appeal on one ground only, where there had been a challenge to the dismissal of a judicial review claim. The court made a declaration that the appellant had been treated unfairly when the respondent was deciding whether to reappoint him to the Industrial Court of Trinidad and Tobago. This will be heard in Court 3 from 11am.
