T Limited v An Insurance Company
The Defendant’s insurance policy did not respond to the Claimant’s claim arising from losses caused by a fire. The failure of indemnity was initially excused on grounds of non-disclosure and the Defendant denied a liability to pay damages in excess of the sum assured + interest.
The Commercial Court ordered that the claim for all damages, naturally and foreseeably flowing from the alleged breach of the insurance contract, should be pleaded in the margin and served upon the Defendants and the Defendants should plead (again in the margin) their proposed reply (the procedure adopted as the Court felt bound by precedent).
The Court listed the matter for a trial on liability alone and gave notice that, in the event of the Claimant being successful on the preliminary point, it would be granted permission for a “leapfrog” appeal to the Supreme Court.
The matter settled in mediation in advance of the trial on liability.
