Application by Road Haulage Association Limited ("RHA") to commence collective proceedings under section 47B of the Competition Act 1998 (the "RHA CPO Application"). The proposed collective proceedings would combine follow-on actions for damages arising from a decision of the European Commission of 19 July 2016 (Case AT.39824 – Trucks).
A case management conference took place on 12 December 2018. The Tribunal directed that the RHA CPO Application be heard with the CPO application in Case 1282 (UKTC) (together, the "CPO Applications").
A hearing to deal with certain issues relating to confidentiality/redactions listed for 25 January 2019 was vacated.
The deadline for any person with an interest (including any member of the proposed class) to object to either or both of the CPO Applications or the authorisation of either or both of the proposed class representatives and/or to seek permission to make oral observations at the hearing of the CPO Applications was 4pm on 12 April 2019.
A pre-hearing review ("PHR") took place on 8 May 2019. At the PHR, the Tribunal decided that the main hearing of the CPO Applications should be adjourned, for reasons given in a written judgment issued on 17 May 2019 ( CAT 15). A preliminary issue in relation to funding arrangements has been listed for 4 June 2019 with a time estimate of two days and one in reserve.
