Darragh Connell successfully obtains anti suit injunction to restrain multi million dollar US proceedings

Commercial Litigation, Judgments

31 August 2022

Darragh Connell was instructed by Cooke Young & Keidan LLP in respect of an urgent Part 8 claim issued in the High Court (Chancery Division) to restrain proceedings commenced in the State of Utah seeking US$ 4.8 million. The relief sought in Utah had been previously included in a counterclaim commenced in this jurisdiction that had been dismissed on 15 March 2022. The US proceedings were commenced by way of Verified Complaint and Jury Demand on 18 March 2022.

The judgment is a notable example as to when the English High Court will restrain an abuse of its own processes by way of duplicative foreign proceedings.

A copy of the judgment is available here.
