Court Proceedings In Breach Of An Arbitration Agreement

The Court therefore seems to regard the opening of judicial proceedings as a refusal to carry out all the obligations arising from the arbitration agreement. It is clear why the BVI action showed such a refusal: it was combined with a refusal of the arbitration agreement. Under S 9 (1) of the 1996 Arbitration Act (AA 1996), a party to an arbitration agreement that is the subject of arbitration proceedings on a case which, under that agreement, must be referred to arbitration, may apply to the jurisdiction before which the stay of proceedings were initiated, as far as it concerns that case. In accordance with the 1996 AA, S 9 (3), this non-interested person may make such an application before taking the appropriate step of proceedings (if any) to recognize the legal proceedings against him, or after taking steps in the context of this procedure to respond to the material request. Until L`AA 1996, s 9 (4), the court grants a stay to such an application, unless the arbitration agreement is null, inoperative or not. The Tribunal found that an injunction against the action is generally granted to deter an applicant from proceeding in a non-contractual forum, unless it is found that there are reasons to the contrary, whether or not the applicant is a party to the directive. The Tribunal`s decision was based on the fact that a dispute resolution provision was an essential part of the contractual basis on which insurance coverage was based and that a party wishing to enforce a policy could not do so freely from its contractual dispute resolution mechanism. Third parties may at any time accept the link to this arbitration agreement in any document that must be forwarded to the parties to this contract (agreement). An examination of whether Hualon expressed a “repugnant intent” in its actions clearly shows that the Court analyzed the case within the meaning of the waiver, that is, where a party “explicitly or implicitly refuses to perform in accordance with the terms of the contract”. However, a refusal to perform is a waiver if it is a refusal to fulfill (i) all contractual obligations, (ii) a condition or (iii) if the resulting breach satisfied the Hong Kong Fir Test2) Singapore Contract Law, Andrew Phang Boon Leong, Gen Ed, paragraph 17.003, 17.031 and 17.048; Chitty on Contracts, 33rd edition, Para24-018.

On April 24, 2018, the Mcculloughs and Rain Forest defendants, including Mr. von der Goltz, reached a dispute settlement agreement. The agreement was approved by the Florida court, which referred the case to arbitration. The sentence was handed down on 28 May 2018 and the verdict was handed down on 12 July 2018 in favour of McCulloughs, including Mr von der Goltz, for $65.5 million.
