This comes under Scots law where an Arbiter dismissed a £5m

Customer Question

This comes under Scots law where an Arbiter dismissed a £5m claim as irrelevant (no proof) by way of a (corrupt) Draft Opinion. The Claimant pointed out to the Arbiter (by way of Observation to his Draft Opinion) that the contents of his Draft Opinion misrepresented (in fact it can be said they consist of a pack of lies) the Claimants pleadings and case as a whole. The Arbiter disregarded the Claimants Observations and proceeded to dismiss the case by way of a Final Draft Opinion. By his dismissal he has deliberately caused huge financial loss to the claimant. On the basis of Fraudulent Misrepresentation, can the Claimant seek remedies from the court by a) seeking reduction of the Deed of Appointment, b) seeking repayment of fees paid to him, b) damages by way of fees paid to lawyers relating to the Arbitration presided upon by him and c) further damages relating to the £5m claim he dismissed.
