Bernard Sport Surfaces Ltd v Astrosoccer4U Ltd

Arbitration – Adjudication. The claimant company was given permission to continue with the enforcement of an adjudicator's decision, in a dispute concerning a football pitch. The Technology and Construction Court held that the defendant had attempted to avoid the debt that it owed the claimant. While the circumstances, while regrettable, were not unusual, the connivance of the defendant's solicitors was unusual.
