ABSTRACT
This article reports that a European Court of Justice decision in a personal injury case on March 1 could have wide ranging implications for commercial disputes, said one of the lawyers involved. The court was ruling on questions from the Court of Appeal from July 2002 in the case of Owusu v Jackson. Richard Plender QC of 20 Essex Street Chambers, who acted for Andrew Owusu, said the case will impact on several pending commercial disputes. Plender added that the rigid rules of civil law have won out over more flexible common law rules.
