Luxmi Township Limited v. Asif Iqbal Hussain and Ors. - (High Court of Calcutta) (11 Aug 2015)

Opposing an interim injunction does not necessarily constitute submitting a first statement on the substance of the dispute



Waiver of a right by a party to enforce the arbitration agreement must be gathered from the facts and circumstances of the case. The Court noted that though the Petitioner had filed a written objection to an injunction application by the Respondent, its application for arbitration could not be dismissed. The disclosure of a defence opposing a motion for interim injunction did not mean that the party had filed its first statement on the substance of the disputes. It opined, Courts must determine if by filing its pleadings a party has 'clearly and unambiguously waived its right to seek arbitration'.
