Cape disclosure documents: Supreme Court grants permission to appeal

The Supreme Court has granted the parties permission to appeal the Court of Appeal’s decision in Cape Intermediate Ltd v Dring (for and on behalf of Asbestos Victims Support Groups Forum UK) [2018] EWCA Civ 1795: https://www.supremecourt.uk/docs/permission-to-appeal-2018-10.pdf

It appears from the Supreme Court’s website that Cape brought the initial appeal and the Forum has cross-appealed. We don’t know on what basis the parties have appealed the decision.

Permission was granted on 31 October 2018.
