ED & F Man Sugar Ltd. v. Belmont Shipping Ltd. (The “Amplify”) – QBD (Comm. Ct.), 18 Nov 2011

SUGAR CHARTER PARTY 1999 -- INVALID NOTICE OF READINESS -- DEMURRAGE -- ALLEGED SERIOUS IRREGULARITY BY ARBITRATORS -- Owner Award In ruling for Charterer in an arbitration on documents alone, the Panel noted that as Charterer had not introduced the case of "The Happy Day", the inclusion of which may have further reduced Charterer's demurrage obligation, the Panel need not consider it.
