556. Anti-arbitration injunctions.

Despite the principle of non-interference in arbitrations1, in certain circumstances, such as where oppressive and vexatious or unconscionable conduct is proved, the court may grant an injunction restraining the bringing or continuance of foreign arbitration proceedings2. This is a similar jurisdiction to that under which foreign proceedings may be restrained by an anti-suit injunction3, but in ordinary cases the caution exercised by the court relating to anti-suit injunctions should be increased or even re-doubled in the case of an anti-arbitration injunction
