Shipping – Bill of lading. All of the defendant shipper's claims against the claimant owners were subject to art III r 6 of the Hague Rules. The Commercial Court held that the operation of the time bar created by art III r 6 applied to claims for wrongful misdelivery, where the shipowner had delivered the cargo to a third party without production of the bill of lading. Further, save for certain related proceedings, the defendant's claims against the owners were extinguished by the operation of art III r 6 of the Hague Rules.
