Commercial analysis: Thomson Reuters (TR) applied for summary judgment to dismiss Arab Lawyers Network Co’s (ALN) claims stating that the claims were time-barred. The case, while turning on its own facts, is interesting due to the judge’s comments about how to interpret the time bar clause found in the contract. These clauses which are found in many types of contract, can have the effect of preventing a party from making what would otherwise be a perfectly valid claim, arising out of the default of the other party to the contract.
