Gateley found negligent in property transaction case

first_imgCity firm Gateley was in breach of contract and negligent in its advice to a property dealer who sought to redevelop land in Nottingham, according to the High Court judgment in Moda International Brands v Gateley LLP & Gateley Plc.Gateley was acting for Moda, a development company conducting a transaction with Mortar Developments.Mortar had contacted Moda about the Nottingham site, proposing to build student accommodation on the land. A joint development agreement was suggested.The judgment states that Richard Wilkinson acted as Moda’s agent, giving instructions on its behalf. He was advised by Austin Moore, a former partner at Gateley and a close personal friend with whom he often went on holiday. The dispute centres on agreements stating that Wilkinson is not entitled to profit from a particular area of the site, the Angel Row unit.While Wilkinson expected to receive 35% of the Angel Row profits, the participation agreement and the development agreement that were drawn up said he would not profit from that section of the site.The participation agreement replaced a declaration of trust, under which Wilkinson would receive 35% of profits from the whole project. Wilkinson alleged there was no prior agreement or understanding with Mortar to exclude profits from the Angel Row unit.His Honour Judge Freedman ruled that Gateley failed to inform Wilkinson that he would not share the profits from the Angel Row Unit with Mortar. Freedman identified two failings on the part of the firm.Firstly, Moore did not provide Wilkinson with the relevant agreements before they were executed. Instead, the judgment states, Moore simply told Wilkinson that the development agreement was ‘normal’. Freedman said: ‘This was misleading (albeit not deliberately so). If, as appears to be the case, he had not mentioned to Mr Wilkinson that the development agreement sought to exclude the Angel Row unit from the profits, it was in fact wholly abnormal.’Gateley also failed to inform Wilkinson of the change to the agreement. Freedman said: ‘Mr Wilkinson was not advised by Mr Moore and did not otherwise know that [Mortar] had informed Mr Moore that he would not agree to share the profit from the Angel Row unit.’‘On the contrary, the advice which Mr Moore gave to Mr Wilkinson was that the 35% share in the declaration of trust was turning into a sharing of 35% of profits of the development.’Freedman J ruled that Gateley was in breach of contract and negligent in connection with the agreements. He also said that Moore’s evidence was ’unreliable’.He ruled: ‘In particular, I am satisfied that it was in breach of contract and/or negligent in failing to take reasonable steps to procure that the participation agreement was drafted in such a manner as to maintain the entitlement of Moda to 35% of the profits in the site as a whole in accordance with the objective of the participation agreement.’Following calculations, he ordered Gateley to pay Moda £221,209.22, including interest. Gateley declined to comment.last_img read more

State Funeral for Former Barbados Prime Minister Owen Arthur

first_imgJordan acknowledged the current climate with the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for protocols including physical distancing to be followed would limit attendance. He said several condolence books will be available for signing from Monday, August 10 in four locations, including the Government Headquarters and the University of the West Indies (the UWI), Cave Hill, where Arthur served as a Professor of Practice. Arthur leaves to mourn his wife and two children. “Quite a bit of the funeral and the details follow his expressed wishes,” Jordan said as he provided an update to reporters on Friday. A virtual condolence book is also available at for friends and well-wishers around the world. “So we do as much as is required under the protocols for a state funeral but we keep the service as simple as possible. He had a saying ‘two hymns and a psalm’ that he often used. We are not going to stick slavishly to that. There are going to be a couple more hymns than he requested,” Jordan said. The service will also be streamed live in addition to national television and radio broadcasts. Minister of Labour Jordan, Colin Jordan, who is coordinating the funeral, said that the funeral will begin and end in Arthur’s hometown parish of St Peter, which he served as a Member of Parliament for 33 years. Jordan, who has succeeded Arthur as the parliamentary representative for St. Peter’s, said the service will take on as many features of a state funeral as possible while trying to honour Arthur’s wishes. On the day of the funeral service the cortege will go through the capital, Bridgetown with a brief stop at the Parliament Buildings. The body of the former prime minister will lay in state at the Parliament Buildings on Wednesday and Thursday and the casket will be closed according to Arthur’s wishes, said Jordan.center_img The funeral service is scheduled for 2.00 pm (local time). at the St Peter’s Parish Church with the burial at the Mount Pleasant Memorial Gardens. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Former Barbados prime minister Owen Arthur will receive a state funeral next Friday – August 14, the government has announced. He said that the locations for the service and interment were Arthur’s wishes and that he did not wish to have the regular spectacle associated with a state funeral. “The funeral for the late Prime Minister will take on that character as is customary for a state funeral and as befitting a funeral offered to a former premier or longest serving prime minister in Barbados,” said Jordan. Arthur, 70, died late last month at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he had been hospitalised for heart complications. “That is not what he or any of us would have wanted, but that is what the current situation presents to us,” Jordan. “And in his words, he would say ‘face it and deal with it’. So we have to observe those protocols.” Arthur, who served as Prime Minister between 1994 and 2008, died on Monday, July 27. “The cortege will then proceed to Speightstown, passing Kensington Oval. We all know that former Prime Minister Arthur was an avid cricket fan and very instrumental in the redevelopment of the Kensington Oval,” said Jordan, adding that further details on the route would be provided early next week.

United States of America to Impose Duty on South Africa Exports

first_imgU.S. President Barack Obama is set to announce the suspension of duty-free treatment of South African agricultural products under the African Growth and Opportunity Act.Exports at risk, include citrus, macadamia nuts and wine. President Obama’s expected move reflects deep frustration with what the White House sees as the South African government’s failure to meet mutually agreed benchmarks for lifting bans on US poultry and beef, nominally imposed to protect the health of South African consumers and livestock.In November last year, Obama gave South Africa 60 days to grant acess to America’s produce into South Africa or he would reimpose tariffs on its farm exports. The deadline expired at midnight on December 31. South Africa’s Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies will make an official statement over the matter, after talks in Cape Town failed to resolve the stalemate.last_img read more

Three reported missing following USVI plane crash

first_img Tweet Lone surviving passenger was rescued by a combined effort of US Coast Guard and a team of local government personnel who were combing the waters southwest of St Thomas. (File photo)CHARLOTTE AMALIE, United States Virgin Islands, Monday, October 15, 2012 – An inter-island paper run in the United States Virgin Islands turned tragic on Saturday (October 13) morning after a small plane went down in the waters between St Thomas and St Croix. One person survived and three others have been reported missing after the Piper PA-23-250 plane went down just eight miles south of the airport in St Thomas while it was delivering newspapers within the US Virgin Islands.A statement issued by the USVI governor, John de Jongh, on Saturday identified the surviving passenger as Valerie Jackson. He revealed that Jackson was rescued by a combined effort of US Coast Guard and a team of local government personnel who were combing the waters southwest of St Thomas when she was discovered in the water Saturday afternoon. Thomas was alert and able to talk to rescuers when picked up around 2 pm.De Jongh said that local and federal government personnel were aggressively searching for the three missing passengers of the crashed twin-engine Piper Aztec aircraft. The statement revealed that alarms were raised after it was recognised at about 7:50 am on Saturday that the plane was overdue into St Thomas. The plane had taken off from St. Croix with a shipment of newspapers. On board the flight were two females and one male passengers and a male pilot. According to reports coming from the Associated Press, Federal Aviation Administration records showed the plane’s certification status had been terminated.

Sandy expected to hit Jamaica tomorrow

first_img 7 Views   no discussions TROPICAL Storm Sandy could be near hurricane strength when it makes landfall tomorrow on the southern end of Jamaica, the Meteorological Service is reporting.Heavy rains accompanied by gale force winds are expected to affect the island today into tomorrow as the 18th named weather system, which formed uncharacteristically south of Jamaica, hits the island.Yesterday, the Meteorological Service placed Jamaica on a Tropical Storm Watch, as at 5:00 pm Sandy was located near Latitude 12.5 degrees, Longitude 78.5 degrees West, or about 640 kilometres (395 miles) south south-west of Kingston or 490 kilometres (300 miles) south of the Pedro Cays.“Over the next couple of days, showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase significantly over Jamaica, along with strong, gusty winds,” the Meteorological Service said.Flash flooding, the Met Service said, is therefore likely between this evening and Thursday, while storm surge of near two metres is possible along the southern coastline from Clarendon to St Thomas.Meteorological technician at the Met Service Andre Cuthbert told the Jamaica Observer that, while tropical storm conditions are expected to begin today, the system will move over Jamaica tomorrow morning.“The full impact of the system should be around Wednesday, although we will begin feeling some effects by tomorrow (today),” Cuthbert said.He explained further that based on the forecast, it is to be expected that Jamaica will definitely be impacted, initially by a lot of rainfall, followed by wind.The Met Service said Tropical Storm Sandy has remained nearly stationary over the past few hours, but a motion towards the north and northnorth-east is expected during the next couple of days.On this forecast track, the centre of the tropical storm will begin to move across Jamaica, from south to north, near midday tomorrow.Director General of the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) Ronald Jackson said flooding is a distinct possibility for some sections of the island over the next two days.While the island will also be impacted by wind, Jackson said the major impact will be from flooding.“We are expecting significant flooding for low-lying areas, with between eight and 12 inches of rainfall expected over that period,” Jackson told the Observer yesterday. As such, the ODPEM boss said parish co-ordinators have already been mobilised, additional resources allocated and the political directorate briefed.Shelters, he said, have already been identified and a list of such facilities will be made available today.Meanwhile, the emergency machinery will fully kick in today as Jackson said there will be a further briefing of other emergency agencies and response teams today.Jackson said while attention will be placed on communities made vulnerable by the recent heavy rains, there are several other areas which will be closely monitored by the agency, as a result of the current weather forecast.“Because of the nature of the system, it can be much more widespread, and so we are planning for the entire island,” Jackson said.However, among the communities which will come in for greater scrutiny are Bull Bay, Nine Miles, Ten Miles, Taylor, and Trinityville, as well as others in St Thomas.“We don’t want to alarm the public, but based on the forecast we will have to look at these vulnerable communities,” Jackson said, adding that the ODPEM already has a fair idea of where there might be some displacements.Residents in some of these vulnerable communities can also expect to be evacuated.ODPEM said marine interests will also experience winds, primarily out of the east, and southerly by this evening. They must, therefore, move swiftly to secure themselves.Fishers on the cays and banks are also urged to evacuate immediately and return to the mainland.Other small craft operators in coastal waters are advised to return to port and small craft operators who are in port are advised not to venture out.Jamaica Observer NewsRegional Sandy expected to hit Jamaica tomorrow by: – October 23, 2012last_img read more

LOZ Rewrite Back Before Assembly

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will once again consider the rewrite of local option zoning codes Tuesday during a joint work session with the Planning Commission, followed by the Assembly meeting. Assembly member Brent Johnson sponsored the ordinance which went up for public testimony during the February 2 meeting but was postponed. Asmb. Johnson: “The Planning Commission met and there was so much to absorb, it’s a very thick change that’s going to take place, kind of a whole rewrite of that section of code. So what we did is set up a joint meeting with the Planning Commission on the 23rd, that way we can have a work shop with them and get their input on it and whether or not we would actually pass anything that same day, or wait until the Planning Commission has the chance to actually bring something forward at their next meeting, I don’t know.” Johnson says another main concern was the potential impact of some regulations about gravel pits near local option zoning districts. Asmb. Johnson: “The local option zoning makes the setbacks 500 feet from the boundary of the local option zoning, so somebody with a lot on the edge of the local option zoning, the gravel pit would have to be 500 feet back from [the parcel line] unless the gravel pit was pre-existing. Both an Assembly member and someone from the Planning Commission thought that was too strict for gravel pit operators.” Borough Assembly members and the Planning Commission will consider the ordinance during a 1:00 pm work session Tuesday, February 23, followed by more discussion at the 6:00 pm regular meeting. Both of those will be held in the Assembly Chambers. The local option zoning regulations could be applied to neighborhoods that want to include or exclude marijuana establishments; he says planning department and assembly members recognize the deadline of February 24, the date the state will begin accepting commercial pot business applications.last_img read more
