Interserve Industrial Services Ltd v Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd
Citation: All ER (D) 49 TCC
Nature of case:
Where a series of adjudications between claimant sub-contractor and defendant contractor were initiated, the defendant tried to resist enforcement of the decision of the second adjudication by maintaining that it could be set off against the third award, which had been issued during the enforcement proceedings. The TCC rejected this argument: under ss.108(3) and 111of the HGCR Act and the CIC Model Adjudication Procedure adopted, defendant was under an obligation to paythe amount of the second award and summary judgment was entered.
