Online Contracts in UK Law
Interactive Technology Corporation Ltd v Jonathan Ferster and Others
Before turning to the other requirements for granting a freezing order and the basis for a search and preservation order, I should add that had it been necessary I would have concluded that on the evidence before me, which was also before Birss J, that there is and was a good arguable case in relation to breach of fiduciary duty by Jonathan by the dishonest and unauthorised transfer of the company's business and assets to WOS, the second defendant, and the appropriation of business opportunities and as to unauthorised remuneration and expenses.
In this regard I take into account the very serious nature of such an order. Nevertheless, in my judgment there is a very strong prima facie case against the defendants arising from the facts and matters to which I have already referred. I also consider that there was and is a real risk of destruction of evidence which can be inferred from the same matters to which I have referred under the heading of the freezing order.
Redd Solicitors LLP v Red Legal Ltd and Another
The question is whether Red Legal acquired an "earlier right" to sue for passing off by the use of the name "RED LEGAL" for residential conveyancing. The dividing line between rights sufficient to give rise to a locality defence under s11(3) and rights sufficient to satisfy a challenge to validity under s5(4) was not explored in argument in any detail. I do not accept that the evidence justifies a locality defence as at 10 th June 2010 which goes any wider than the county of Northamptonshire.
Eurasia Sports Ltd v Lan-Chun Tsai (Known as Martin Tsai) and Others
Applying the test from Altimo (above) at  it appears to me that all these claims involve one investigation. The relevant defendants have each advanced explanations for their conduct which have to be considered alongside those advanced by other defendants in determining not only their liability in tort but also, so far as it is different, in contract. On the face of it, that seems a perfectly reasonable subject for investigation in these proceedings.
