The Relevance of Foreign Law to the Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction of Local Courts: Metall Und Rohstoff and the Ts Havprins Revisited
Order 11 rule 1 of the Rules of Court, which has been described as representing the ‘exorbitant’ extra-territorial jurisdiction of the courts, comprises some 19 sub-rules which lay down the various instances in which such jurisdiction may be exercised. … The cases of Metall und Rohstoff AG v Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Inc [ 1 QB 391] and The TS Havprins [ 2 Lloyd’s Rep 356] appear to highlight the differing approaches that the English courts have adopted in the interpretation of the English equivalent of Ord 11 r 1.
