Enforcement of foreign judgments

Aeroflot are seeking recognition and enforcement of a Russian Judgment in England. Mr Glushkov and Mr Berezovsky were successful in striking out the claim at first instance as the court held that to enforce the Russian Judgment in England would be a plain breach of the principle of finality. The Court of Appeal overturned that decision and held that whether a foreign judgment breached the finality principle fell to be determined by reference to the foreign law and the case should therefore proceed to trial. Mr Glushkov and Mr Berezovsky applied to the Supreme Court for permission to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal.
