Abstract

Considers the Court of Appeal judgment in Metall Market OOO v Vitorio Shipping Co Ltd on whether the rule established by the House of Lords decision in Somes (Joseph) v Director of British Empire Shipping Co, that a bailee was entitled to refuse to return the goods unless paid for the expenses incurred in their preservation and care provided that possession was not being denied solely on the ground that a lien was being exercised, applied to a ship owner who asserted a lien for disbursements incurred in a claim for general average.
