Navios International Inc v Sangamon Transportation Group

This is the first case to consider the scope of the Court's jurisdiction to order a tribunal to give further reasons under the Arbitration Act 1996 s.70(4). Hamblen J held that it was not appropriate for the court to exercise its discretion to order an arbitral tribunal to state the reasons for its award for the purposes of an appeal where what the applicant sought was the opportunity to present further evidence and seek further findings from the tribunal, which evidence and findings were not considered necessary at the time of the arbitration.

Julian Kenny acted for the applicant (instructed by Reed Smith).

Henry Byam-Cook acted for the respondent (instructed by Holman Fenwick Willan LLP).
