High Court recasts scope of consequential loss
Star Polaris LLC v HHIC-Phil Inc  EWHC 2941 (Comm), 17 November 2016
It will be remembered that Lord Hoffmann in Caledonia North Sea v British Telecommunications  UKHL 4 doubted obiter
whether the Court of Appeal decisions equating “consequential loss” in exclusion clauses to the second limb of Hadley v Baxendale
were correct. In this recent appeal from an arbitration award, the Commercial Court revisited this precise question.
