Star Reefers Pool Inc. v JFC Group Co. Ltd.

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

In this case Teare J ordered that an anti-suit injunction granted against the Defendant by Christopher Clarke J on 15 October 2010 should be continued.


The Claimant had issued proceedings in London against the Defendant under two contracts of guarantee.  The Defendant, a Russian company, had itself applied to the Russian court for a declaration that the contracts of guarantee were not binding.  It was held by Teare J that the Defendant’s conduct in doing so was vexatious and oppressive, and that an anti-suit injunction should therefore be granted to restrain the proceedings. 


The case raised questions relating to the circumstances in which interim anti-suit injunctions may be granted and served on Defendants out of the jurisdiction, and the meaning of vexatious conduct. 


Charles Kimmins QC and Luke Pearce appeared on behalf of the Claimant.
