Youell v La Reunion Aerienne [2009] EWCA Civ 175; [2009] WLR (D) 95

Where a court could otherwise determine the substance of a claim, the mere fact that the claim was the subject of an arbitration agreement did not deprive the court of its jurisdiction under Council Regulation (EC) 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. What was critical was the nature of the claim.”
