HOCHTIEF SOLUTIONS AG AND OTHERS v MASPERO ELEVATORI SPA
 ScotCS CSOH 102, Outer House of the Court of Session, Lord Clark, 17 December 2020
Adjudication – Whether or not effective reservation to jurisdiction of adjudicator had been entered

Second, it submitted that the adjudicator had failed to exhaust his jurisdiction by failing to address substantive lines of defence relied upon by the defender.
