Claim under section 47A of the Competition Act 1998. The claimant has applied for fast-track designation.
A case management conference took place on 16 May 2016 at which the President gave directions for the future conduct of the case. The case was designated to the fast-track and the issues arising in the proceedings were split, with liability to be determined first and the issue of quantification of damages adjourned to be heard after judgment on liability.
A further CMC took place on 21 June 2016 at which the President gave directions for disclosure and capped the recoverable costs ( CAT 10). Pursuant to an order dated 30 June 2016, a pre-trial review took place on 14 October 2016 (see order of this date).
The hearing on liability took place from 8 to 11 November 2016 at the Rolls Building. Judgment on liability was handed down on 26 May 2017 ( CAT 10). At the handing down hearing, the Tribunal gave a ruling in relation to costs ( CAT 12).
The claim was discontinued by consent on 5 September 2017.
