On 2 August 2011, the Competition Appeal Tribunal (“CAT”) published an order to stay an action for damages brought by Deutsche Bahn and a number of other claimants against members of the carbon and graphite products cartel. On 25 May 2011, the CAT had ruled that the damages action brought against Morgan Crucible had been brought out of time and so should be struck out. On 11 July 2011, the CAT granted the claimants permission to appeal this judgment to the Court of Appeal. The claimants and the remaining defendants have now agreed to stay the damages action pending the determination by the Court of Appeal of the claimants’ appeal against the CAT’s judgment of 25 May 2011.
