Banks exceptions to Commission's complaint to be heard under themes - January 2018
Banks exceptions in the forex cartel case to be heard under themes – set down for three days in January 2018
The Competition Tribunal has ordered that all the exceptions by the banks in the CC vs Bank of America and others case will be heard thematically over three days from 24 to 26 January 2018, rather than hearing exceptions separately by each bank.
The hearing has been confined to so called “pure exceptions” i.e. those based on the referral as supplemented. They can only deal with exceptions to the referral as it stands now. No new facts can be produced by the respondents.
The hearing will be divided according to the following themes:
(2) The failure to plead material facts or which others have characterised as failure to sustain a cause of action.
- NOTE: See attachments for full order
