Wembley steelwork contractor submits application to court of appeal in bid to overturn judge's decision on Wembley row.

Former Wembley steelwork contractor Cleveland Bridge has decided to appeal the judge's decision in its £50m High Court row with Multiplex.

Cleveland Bridge today submitted an application to the court of appeal in a bid to overturn last month's ruling, which found Cleveland Bridge guilty of breaching its contract with Multiplex. The court of appeal must now decide whether to grant a further hearing.

A Cleveland Bridge spokesperson said: "We have submitted a notice for leave to appeal. We will submit skeleton arguments to the court over the coming weeks."

The spokesperson would not comment on the specific nature of Cleveland Bridge's appeal, or discuss which elements of Justice Jackson's decision were being challenged by the firm. However, it is expected that CBUK will seek to overturn two key decisions that went in Multiplex's favour. One is the issue of repudiatory breach of contract. The other is the judge's ruling that a figure of £32.66m agreed between the two parties for parts of CBUK's work was not final and binding.
