Global Process Systems Inc and another v Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad – WLR Daily

“A provision in a marine cargo insurance policy excluding loss resulting from any inherent inability of the goods to withstand a voyage applied only where the goods had deteriorated, not because they had been subjected to some external fortuitous accident or casualty, but because of their natural behaviour in the ordinary course of the voyage.”

“A cargo seized by pirates and subsequently recovered after being ransomed by the shipowner was not ‘irretrievably lost’ within the terms of section 57(1) of the Marine Insurance Act 1906, even though some might regard the payment of a ransom as morally objectionable and it was something the owner was not required to do.”

“An arbitral tribunal in assessing damages for breach of contract had been wrong to treat a claim for wasted expenses and a claim for loss of profits as two separate and independent claims which could not be ‘mixed’. Both claims were governed by the principle which required the court to make a comparison between the claimant’s current position and what it would have been had the contract been performed. Where steps had been taken to mitigate the loss which would otherwise have been caused by a breach of contract that principle required the benefits obtained by mitigation to be set against the loss which would otherwise have been sustained.”

Farstad Supply AS v Enviroco Ltd – WLR Daily

Farstad Supply AS v Enviroco Ltd [2010] UKSC 18; [2010] WLR (D) 113

“A requirement in a charterparty for the owner to indemnify the charterer against claims resulting from loss or damage in relation to the vessel was not limited to a requirement for the owner to reimburse claims against the charterer by third parties but precluded the owner from recovering damages from the charterer in respect of the charterer’s own negligence. It followed that where it was alleged that the charterer and a third party had jointly caused damage to the vessel whilst it was berthed in Scotland and, because of the indemnity agreement, the owner sued only the third party in the Scots courts, the third party would not be able to claim a contribution under s 3(2) of the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1940 from the charterer as a ‘person who, if sued, might also have been held liable’.”
