- A v B [ 9 July 2015 (Commercial Court)]
A clause in a contract whereby one party would “seek to enforce his rights” under a related agreement by filing an arbitration claim against the other party was a binding arbitration clause. It was not merely an expression of intent with no implied acceptance of the jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal.
- K v S [ 9 July 2015 (Commercial Court)]
A challenge to an arbitral award had been made out of time where the party making the challenge had mistakenly believed that its application for a correction to the award had stopped time from beginning to run until the correction had been made, and where that correction had not been material to the grounds of challenge. There had been no evidence that that mistaken belief was the reason why the challenge had not been issued within time and there was therefore no good reason to extend time.
