Conflict of laws – Jurisdiction. In the course of a dispute concerning the paying of sub-contractors, the defendant employer made an application, contending that the English court lacked jurisdiction to hear the claim. The Commercial Court, in dismissing the application, held that there was a good arguable case that the position was as claimed by the claimant and that it had been reasonably forseeable that the claim might be issued in, among other places, England.
