GMWDA strike out judgement expected to take "several weeks"

It will take several weeks for the judgement from the Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority case to come out, according to waste firm Sita.

The GMWDA recently launched an attempt at Londons High Court to strike out Sita UKs bid to secure more than £90 million in damages over the award of the Greater Manchester waste private finance initiative bid to Viridor Laing (see MRW story).

The hearing lasted four days instead of the expected two days.

Mr Justice Mann who is the judge overseeing the case said in court on the final day of the hearings (9 February) that the judgement will be made the week commencing 15 February.

However, his clerk told MRW: I still do not have a date for that judgement.

A Sita spokesman said the firm did not have an exact date for the judgement but it was expected to take several weeks.
