Sabbagh v Khoury and others

Practice – Summary judgment. For the purposes of art 6(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001, the claimant had a real prospect of establishing a claim of conspiracy to deprive her of her entitlement to shares in the eighth defendant company against the first defendant, as the anchor defendant. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, further refused a mandatory stay of the proceedings under an arbitration clause and held that the judge had been right to reject the objections to jurisdiction based on the claim being a matter of succession, within the meaning of art 1(2)(a) of the Regulation.
