On 17 November 2008, the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) confirmed that Enron Coal (Enron), a company in liquidation since 2002, is seeking damages from English, Welsh and Scottish Railway Limited (EWS). This claim follows from the 2006 decision by the Office of Rail Regulation that EWS had abused its dominant position in the market for coal haulage by rail, in breach of both national competition law and Article 82 of the EC Treaty. EWS was found to have formed exclusive agreements with industrial coal users from 1996 until 2005, and engaged in predatory pricing for 18 months from July 2002. Accordingly, EWS was fined £4m. Enron are now seeking damages in the CAT for the loss suffered by EWS imposing additional costs in relation to coal haulage, and preventing Enron from obtaining new business or extending business. Enron is seeking damages and lost profit, restitutionary damages, an account of profits, interest, costs and further relief.
