Masri v Consolidated Contractors International Co SAL
Date of Judgment: 05.05.11
Alan Boyle QC, Prof Jonathan Harris QC, Dan McCourt Fritz
Acted for the first and second respondents to a contempt application in the long running litigation in the Commercial Court. The case involved myriad English and Lebanese law issues, but the central question for the court was whether a contempt should be held to have occurred in circumstances where a respondent had been ordered to commit the allegedly contemptuous act by a foreign court.
