Discain Project Services Ltd v Opecrime Development Ltd: TCC 1 Aug 2000

The applicant sought leave to defend the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Held: The adjudicator had accepted oral and written communications with one party, from which the other party was excluded. This was such a serious breach of the rules of natural justice, that the court ought not to give summary judgment enforcing the award. Leave to defend given: ‘the adjudicator has to conduct the proceedings in accordance with the rules of natural justice or as fairly as the limitations imposed by Parliament permit’.
