New Media Distribution Company SEZC Ltd (formerly known as New Media Distribution Company Ltd) v Kagalovsky

Estoppel – Issue estoppel. The defendant was prevented by the doctrine of issue estoppel and/or abuse of process from contradicting the findings of a New York court, in a dispute concerning alleged breach of contract in the running of a television channel created by the parties. The Chancery Division held that there were no exceptional circumstances justifying releasing the defendant from the usual consequences of an issue estoppel or abuse of process argument.
