“An application for a stay of legal proceedings made under s 9 of the Arbitration Act 1996 was not subject to the procedural rules contained in CPR Pt 11 for challenging the jurisdiction of the court. An application for an extension of time to serve the defence was not a step in the proceedings to answer the substantive claim and the defendant was not debarred from seeking a stay by s 9(3) of the Act.”

Youell and Others v La Reunion Aerienne

Court of Appeal

Johns v Solent SD Ltd

Court of Appeal

“Where there was a reasonable chance that the Court of Justice of the European Communities might decide a case pending before it so as to give a plaintiff a good claim in the English courts, the sensible answer was to stay the hearing of the claimant’s case so that it would not be snuffed out before the European Court decision became known.”
