Palmac Contracting Ltd v Park Lane Estates Ltd
Citation: BLR 301 TCC
Nature of case:
This will probably become a much-quoted case on the question of service by e-mail. An attempt was made to argue that there was no dispute because an application for payment under the contract had been sent by e-mail. The judge did not accept that this had any relevance to jurisdiction, although the dispute was not appropriate for enforcement by summary judgment in any event. There was no breach of the rules of natural justice.
