Choo Han Teck J:


1 This dispute revolves around the construction and validity of a corporate guarantee. On 18 October 1999, the plaintiff, Cytech Industries Pte Ltd, concluded a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with APP Chemicals International (Mau) Ltd (“APP Chemicals”). The LOI confirmed APP Chemical’s intent to purchase products from the plaintiff and the plaintiff’s willingness to sell. If the plaintiff proved to be up to mark as a supplier, a Purchase Agreement (“PA”) would then be awarded to it. On 28 February 2000, the defendant Asia Pulp & Paper Company Ltd, the parent company of APP Chemicals, entered into a guarantee with the plaintiff, whereby it undertook to guarantee the payment obligations of APP Chemicals (“the Guarantee”). The Guarantee was backdated to 25 October 1999 and its salient terms are as follow:

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd

...9-707-441 REV: MARCH 30, 2010 TARUN KHANNA KRISHNA PALEPU CLAUDINE MADRAS Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd In Israel we have a 1970s song based on a poem from 1953 by Amir Gilboa about Theodor Herzl.1 It has a line in it about Herzl: “Suddenly a man rises in the morning, feels he is a people, and starts walking.” That is exactly what Hurvitz did. Suddenly he woke up in the morning, feels he is a giant world class company, and starts walking. No one, aside from Herzl, has accomplished anything as remotely as impressive in this country as Hurvitz. It was impossible, a million to one odds at best, and he still did it. He woke up one morning and started walking. — Ori Hershkovitz, equity analyst at Tel Aviv-based Leader & Company The markets had not been kind to Teva Pharmaceutical during the first half of 2006. The stock had plunged nearly 30% from January 1 to June 30, erasing billions of dollars from the company’s market capitalization. Even good news, such as reports in July of Teva’s wildly successful introduction of generic Zocor—the largest blockbuster drug ever to go off-patent—had failed to boost the stock significantly. Since nearly every retirement fund and mutual fund in Israel invested in Teva, this drop had been felt throughout the population, in effect amounting to every Israeli family losing NIS 3000, or $675.1 Teva was more than the world’s leading producer of generic pharmaceuticals (see Exhibit 1 for financials). It represented the gold standard of......

Dasreef Pty Ltd V Hawchar

...Introduction The High Court’s decision in Dasreef Pty Ltd v Hawchar [2011] HCA 21 has been significant as the threshold requirements for the admissibility of expert evidence are clarified (French 2012). This essay will first discuss the facts of the case, followed by the technical requirements and perceived difficulties related to expert evidence identified by the court in this case. Facts Mr Hawchar, the respondent claimed damages from his employer, Dasreef Pty Ltd, the appellant as he was diagnosed with silicosis allegedly caused by the unsafe working environment. An expert, Dr Basden was retained to provide a report centering on the foreseeability of the alleged injury claimed by Mr Hawchar and procedures that Dasreef could take in reducing the risk of injury. The case originated in the Dust Diseases Tribunal where the judge relied on the estimate of the expert evidence in calculating the levels of silica Mr Hawchar was exposed to. This led to a finding that the level of exposure exceeded the applicable standard and was appealed by Dasreef before the Court of Appeal as to the admissibility of the expert’s report. The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal on the basis that the estimate provided in the report was drawn from the expert’s experience, and thus admissible. The admissibility issue of the expert evidence was then brought to the High Court before the judges, French CJ, Gummow, Hayne, Crennan, Kiefel and Bell JJ with Justice Heydon dissented from the majority...

...Legal Aspects of Decision Making- Mgt 625 Case: Shell v. R.W. Sturge Ltd. Facts: The council, society and the cooperation of Lloyd’s is not regarded as an insurance company. It is regarded instead as a market place, wherein certain individual members gather to underwrite a particular type of business. In light of this, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss for improper venue under Rule 12(b) (3) of the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure which the court granted the motion to dismiss. The plaintiffs’ next course of action was to now appeal arguing that the forum selection clauses deprive them of their rights and the Ohio securities laws and Ohio public policy outweigh the policies served by enforcing the forum selection clauses. Procedure: The case was withdrawn from the Hamilton County of Commons, and was moved to the United States Magistrate Judge for deliberation. The Magistrate Judge upon hearing all the motions, verbal debates and numerous protests, ruled in favour of the defendants and dismissed the motion, stating that both parties had an agreement that involved the enforceable forum for selection provision. Issues: The principal issue in this case is: Did the forum selection clauses used by the defendants, in any way deprive the plaintiffs of their rights or expose them to unfair treatments?
