• The Court of Appeal has upheld appeals against two judgments of the High Court in relation to the air cargo cartel private action case. In the first appeal the Court held that the High Court judge was wrong to require an unredacted version of the European Commission's air cargo decision to be disclosed to members of a confidentiality ring. This was on the basis that certain parts of the decision were protected under the presumption of innocence, as applied by the General Court's judgment in Pergan v Commission, and the High Court was obliged to ensure the same protection as given at EU level. In the second appeal, the Court held that the High Court judge had been wrong not to strike out claims based on the economic torts of conspiracy and unlawful interference. Click here.
