MW High Tech Projects UK Ltd (claimant/respondent) v Outotec (USA) Inc. & anr (defendants/appellants)

Wednesday 26 June 2024

By Appellant’s Notice filed on 21 December 2023, the Defendants appeal against parts of the order made by HHJ Stephen Davies KC (sitting as a High Court Judge) dated 17 November 2023.

The C’s claim against the Ds was pleaded on basis of (1) misrepresentation (including fraudulent misrepresentation) and (2) breach of contract . The judge found for Ds and gave summary judgment in their favour on the claim in contract.

But the judge permitted the claim in misrepresentation to proceed.

The Ds submit that C’s claim in fraudulent misrepresentation should be struck out as an abuse of process.
