*Emerald Supplies Ltd and others v British Airways Plc and others

European Union – Commission. In the course of proceedings concerning the defendant airline's alleged involvement with a cartel, the European Commission made a decision. There was dispute as to whether a redacted version of the decision could be made available to the parties. The Chancery Division held that it would be appropriate to create a confidentiality ring between the parties, among whose members the decision could be shared, with the added safeguard that the claimants would be barred from using the decision to commence any further proceedings.
