The claimant sought damages for breach of a company share sale agreement. The seller had given a warranty that it was not involved in any undisclosed litigation. An anti-trust investigation had been begun in the US.
Held: In this case the seller could not demonstrate that it had complied with its own obligations under the warranties, and was therefore precluded from itself relying upon other provisions within the contract.
