AMT Futures Ltd v Boural and Others: ComC 11 Apr 2018

Three defendants applied for summary strike out of the claim against them saying the claim was now time barred: ‘It raises the issue of whether the cause of action for breach of the implied undertaking in an exclusive jurisdiction clause arises once and for all when proceedings are begun otherwise than in the agreed forum, or arises successively each time a step is taken in those proceedings, or arises continuously for so long as those proceedings are on foot.’
