Cottonex Anstalt v Patriot Spinning Mills Ltd

Contract – Construction. The Commercial Court considered the interpretation of a contract in the course of a dispute about the sale of cotton to a Bangladeshi company. The court held that, on the true construction of the contract, the Technical Appeal Committee of the International Cotton Association had erred in finding that a clause was incorporated in the contract, which entitled the defendant company to a payment from the claimant pursuant to an invoicing back clause.
