AT Stannard Ltd v Tobutt and another

Building contract – Adjudication. The defendants, trading through a firm, engaged the claimant company to carry out works of repair to carriageways and footpath. A dispute was referred to adjudication where it was held that the claimant was entitled to payment of its retention in the full sum claimed plus interest. The claimant applied for summary judgment to enforce an adjudicator's award. The Technology and Construction Court, allowing the application, held that the claimant was entitled to summary judgment and it was not open for the defendants to raise a jurisdictional issue, which had not previously been raised.
