The Route More Travelled

2 Travel Obtains Damages in UK

October-December 2012

Brussels partner Matthew Hall wrote the article “The Route More Travelled: 2 Travel Obtains Damages in UK,” which appeared in the October-December 2012 issue of MLex Magazine, which examines the first occasion when a UK court has awarded damages for a competition law infringement at the end of a full trial. On 5 July 2012 the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) awarded 94,000 pounds plus interest to 2 Travel as damages against Cardiff Bus. The claim was based on a 2008 finding by the UK Office of Fair Trading (OFT) that Cardiff Bus had abused a dominant position in local bus services in the UK.
