Pickthall Ltd v Hill Dickinson LLP and another – WLR Daily

Pickthall Ltd v Hill Dickinson LLP and another [2009] EWCA Civ 543; [2009] WLR (D) 183

“It was an abuse of process for a party to issue proceedings on the day before the limitation period expired in the knowledge that the cause of action was vested not in him but in his trustee in bankruptcy, despite the party’s intention of later seeking an assignment of the cause of action and amending the claim form so that the assignment (which had been obtained after the expiration of the limitation period) could be pleaded.”

Doleman v Shaw

Court of Appeal

“When a liquidator disclaimed a lease, that did not determine any liability under the lease of the original lessee or of the guarantor in relation to leases or assignments of the leases executed after the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995 had come into force on January 1, 1996, although the liability of the insolvent assignee company had ceased after the disclaimer.”

Hatzl and Another v XL Insurance Co Ltd

Court of Appeal

“On a proper construction of article 31(1)(a) of the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road, scheduled to the Carriage of Goods by Road Act 1965, a dispute did not become justiciable in England merely by the fact that an assignor of one of the contracting parties happened to be domiciled in England if that was the only connection with the jurisdiction.”

Doleman v Shaw [2009] EWCA Civ 283; [2009] WLR (D) 115

On a true construction of s 178(4) of the Insolvency Act 1986, on the disclaimer of a lease by a liquidator, although the company ceased to be bound by the tenant covenants so far as its own obligations were concerned, it was treated as still bound so far as third party obligations were concerned.”

Hatzl and another v XL Insurance Co Ltd [2009] EWCA Civ 223; [2009] WLR (D) 99

The word ‘defendant’ in art 31(1)(a) of the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road should be interpreted purposively so as to extend to the parties to the contract and to other parties to whom the convention ascribed rights and duties, but not to include an assignee, even if he was also an insurer. An assignee of rights under the convention was to be treated as standing in the shoes of his assignor. He had no different rights to be sued in a particular forum than his assignor.”
