Article summary

This week's edition of Arbitration weekly highlights includes in-depth coverage of the Court of Appeal’s recent decision on arbitrability and four Commercial Court decisions: first, a rejection of Spain’s application, made pursuant to CPR 11 and based on state immunity grounds, to set aside a court order granting the claimant mutual shipowners’ insurance association permission to serve an arbitration claim form out of the jurisdiction; secondly, a rejection of an attempt to set aside an order enforcing an International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) arbitral award on public policy grounds; thirdly, a successful substantive jurisdiction challenge brought under section 67 of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996) against a final award on jurisdiction; and, fourthly, an unsuccessful challenge to an addendum to an ICC arbitral award that was made following an application under Article 35 of the ICC Arbitration Rules.
