Les Laboratoires Servier and another v Apotex Inc and others – WLR Daily

Posted March 31st, 2011 in damages, ex turpi causa, injunctions, law reports, sale of goods by sally

Les Laboratoires Servier and another v Apotex Inc and others [2010] EWHC 730 (Pat); [2011] WLR (D) 111

“The court would not award compensation under a cross-undertaking for the loss sustained by an unlawful business or where the beneficiary of the cross-undertaking had to rely to a substantial extent upon his own illegality in order to establish the loss, provided the unlawfulness was sufficiently serious to engage the ex turpi causa rule. What was sufficiently serious depended on the circumstances of the case, and in particular the state of knowledge of the claimant under the cross-undertaking at the relevant time; but the claimant’s conduct had to be assessed having regard to the fact that the claim was for compensation under a cross-undertaking.”

KG Bominflot Bunkergesellschaft für Mineraloele mbH & Co v Petroplus Marketing AG (The Mercini Lady)[2010] EWCA Civ 1145; [2010] WLR (D) 259

“There was no justification for implying a term in a contract for the sale of goods that goods which were accepted as complying with specification on loading at a seaport should be capable of remaining in an acceptable condition until unloaded at the end of a voyage. The contract specified that the buyer ‘assumes all risks pertaining thereto’. These included the risk of cargo instability. Were the term to be implied it would destroy certainty in the international sale of goods because the testing and certification of goods at the point of loading would always have to make way for a special implied term. Despite the huge inroads made first by the common law and then statute, the underlying principle remained caveat emptor, let the buyer beware.”
