Arbitration analysis: Mr Justice Bryan in the Commercial Court upheld an application to strike out/summarily dismiss the claimant’s application under section 69 of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996) for permission to appeal against two London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA) arbitral awards on the ground that the application was brought outside the 28–day time limit mandated by AA 1996, s 70(3). The court also dismissed the claimant’s application for an extension of time to make its application for permission to appeal. The decision is of particular interest due to the court’s detailed consideration of the authorities on whether an application to the tribunal for a correction of an award under AA 1996, s 57 extends time for challenging/appealing that award to the English court.
