Seagroatt, Conrad

Du Guorong v Bank of China International Ltd
HK Court of First Instance, 30-Jun-2017
Things do go wrong, apparently. Mr Du wins his application for pre-action discovery, to enable him to pursue his claim of some HK$100m against the bank, which is pursuing him for a debt claim of US$852k. On the bank's affirmation in defence, Deputy High Court Judge Conrad Seagroatt says "it is a singularly uninformative document riddled with irrelevancies and inaccuracies". Interestingly, Mr Seagroatt retired as a High Court Justice at 65 in 2003, but is apparently still going strong as a deputy.

Grant David Vincent Williams v Jefferies Hong Kong LtdThe video
HK Court of First Instance, 20-Jun-2013
Mr Williams succeeds in his claim against Jefferies for breach of contract when they dismissed him over a newsletter which contained a hyperlink to a 'Downfall' Hitler parody video, not produced by him. Damages are to be determined. Deputy High Court Judge Conrad Seagroatt is scathing over this bout of political correctness by Jefferies and the people who were supposed to be approving the newsletter for release.
