Reining in the Penalties Doctrine

Wednesday, August 9, 2017 -
17:00 to 18:15

Presented by Dr Karen Fairweather

In 2016, the High Court reconsidered the penalty doctrine in Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited. The UK Supreme Court had, for its part, revisited the doctrine in 2015 in Cavendish Square Holding BV v Makdessi; ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis, a century after the House of Lords decision in Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co Ltd v New Garage and Motor Co Ltd.

This talk will consider the two recent decisions side-by-side, including the implications of Paciocco in light of the earlier High Court case of Andrews v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.
