The claimant sought to bring an action for damages arising from an alleged breach of competition rules by the defendant. The defendant argued that the claim was out of time being outside the two year period required.
Held: The respondent’s appeal succeeded. Where there was an appeal against the infringement itself, the two year period was extended pending the resolution of that appeal. Where the appeal lay only against the penalty imposed, the period was not extended. The clamants would have to apply again to extend the limitation period so as to allow a claim.
