Koninklijke Phillips Electronics NV v Nintendo of Europe GmbH, Ch Div (Nugee J), 25/7/14

Where P’s patent relating to video game controllers had been found to be partially invalid, it was appropriate, exceptionally, to allow the patent to remain in a state of partial invalidity. Claims 1 and 3 were invalid but claim 2 was valid. The normal course would be to amend claim 1 so as to include claim 2 and then delete claim 3. However, deleting claim 3 would alter the construction of claim 2. The court accepted undertakings from P not to assert the invalid claims against others, not to assign the patent or to grant licences in respect of the invalid claims, and to obtain an entry on the register expressing the position.

Zurich Insurance plc v Kay & Ors 1/8/14 (QB)

The defendant had made a false claim of damages regarding a slipping accident. The claimant was the insurer for the company against whom the claim was being sought. The claimant applied to court to commit the defendants to prison for contempt of court as they had embellished and exaggerated their case with scant regard for truth and accuracy. The court concluded that the application for contempt of court must fail as despite the lies, it was unclear as to whether the defendant had lied about where the accident happened.

Napier Park European Capital Opportunities Fund Ltd v Harbourmaster & Ors 11/7/14 (CA)

In construing the terms of a collateral management agreement the court should test any interpretation against the commercial consequences, even where the terms of a clause were clear and unambiguous. Where a clause provided that there should be re-investment of unscheduled principal proceeds only where the senior notes “have not been downgraded below their initial ratings”, the downgrading of the initial notes followed by a subsequent upgrade to their initial status meant that there could be re-investment.
