BHB Enterprises v Victor Chandler [2005] EWHC 1074 (Ch)

High Court judgment (about 16 pages) denying Victor Chandler permission to introduce a new plea of exploitative abuse of dominant position by BHB in litigation relating to the supply of pre-race data.

Laddie J held that a person alleging exploitative abuse under Article 82 or the Competition Act 1998 must do more than compare prices with estimates of costs of production or of the prices that would prevail if "an aggressively competitive market existed" in order to establish that there is a case to answer.
