Summary:

Ruling of the Tribunal on an application by the Claimant to amend the particulars of claim and an application by the Defendant to strike out those parts of the claim which related to compensatory damages.

The Tribunal noted that the application to amend was made at a very early stage of the proceedings, before the defence had been served and that there was no prejudice suggested to the Defendant arising from amendments at that stage. The Tribunal granted the Claimant permission to make the majority of amendments sought. However it did not allow certain amendments, which the Tribunal decided were either doomed to fail or impermissible under section 47A. The Tribunal dismissed the Defendant’s strike out application.

This is an unofficial summary prepared by the Registry of the Competition Appeal Tribunal.
