Conflict of laws Jurisdiction. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, upheld a decision that the claimant had been entitled to an anti-suit injunction preventing the second defendant pursuing proceedings in Russia, in which the second defendant had been seeking to challenge the validity of a guarantee, where that guarantee between the claimant and the first defendant had expressly provided that any challenge to its validity should be determined by way of arbitration in London.
