The case of a ruined cargo of ground nut pellets is to go to the Law Lords. They have given leave for an appeal by Linden Management against a $478,000 (£300,000) damages award made by Mr Justice Longmore in the Commercial Court on 29 March 1994 and upheld by the Court of Appeal on 30 January last year in favour of the Effort Shipping. The case centres on a cargo of pellets shipped on the Sonacos, which on arrival in Dominica were said to be infested and subsequently dumped at sea.
