New Law Lord

Lord Justice Neuberger (Sir David Neuberger) has been elevated from the Court of Appeal for England and Wales to the House of Lords.

The IPKat congratulates his Lordship, who was at one time a judge in the Patents Court. His dissenting judgment in Coflexip SA v Stolt Offshore MS Ltd [2004] EWCA Civ 213 (reported here on BAILII) is the most powerful and persuasive dissent the IPKat can recall reading.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
