Orion Insurance Co v Sphere Drake Insurance: CA 1992

The parties met to negotiate a settlement of the terms of the plaintiff’s withdrawal from a pool insurance scheme. They signed a record of the meeting, but then claimed the record did not amount to a legally binding agreement. The defendants appealed an order in favour of the plaintiffs.
Held: The appeal failed. The judge had been entitled, on the material before him, to conclude that the record was not intended to be legally binding, and had been correct to allow adduction of evidence to show this.
