Former Wembley steel firm Cleveland Bridge has submitted its arguments to the Court of Appeal challenging the judgment in the £50m court case with Multiplex in June.
Building has learned that CBUK wishes to overturn two key decisions:
- The judge’s ruling that a figure of £32.66m agreed for CBUK’s work to February 2004 was not final and binding;
- That CBUK was in repudiatory breach of contract by walking off the site in August 2004.
The Court of Appeal must now decide whether to grant CBUK leave to appeal. A decision it is expected within six weeks.
