A junior joint venture party to a coal mining joint venture sought declarations that certain cash call notices, issued by the senior joint venture party to fund the operation of the mine, were invalid and were therefore not required to be paid. An application for urgent final declaratory relief was listed for trial in the civil list, separate from the trial of the balance of the proceeding. The application was tried and was dismissed. Shane Doyle QC, Matthew Jones and Jaamae Hafeez-Baig appeared for the successful senior joint venture party.
The judgment is published here.
