Today the Supreme Court handed down judgment in the case. The Supreme Court determined that the adjudication could go ahead as the adjudicator had jurisdiction and that the purpose of the adjudication was not futile. As is recorded in the press release "Here an adjudication will be a simple, proportionate method for Bresco’s liquidators to determine the net balance." While the court may refuse to enforce it does not stop the adjudication process from having a use for liquidators.
