Rights to wine lake tested in court case
Thursday 24 February 1994
The receivers, Nigel Vooght and Christopher Hughes, argue that although the cases had been paid for, unless they were individually labelled as belonging to a particular customer, they should go to the National Westminster Bank, which has first call on any assets of the failed company, Ellis Son and Viddler, of Lewes in East Sussex.
The court was told by Peter Arden, for the receivers, that buyers commonly pay a merchant to store their wine until they want to drink it, to preserve it in perfect condition. Some wine would have been bought through the merchant and some elsewhere.
Roger ter Haar QC, for the customers, said a stock book identified how much of each wine each customer owned.
The case continues today.
