Welcome to the Temple city of Tamil Nadu, Tiruchirappalli!

In pursuance of its goal of conditioning law students to efficiently resolve disputes, the Tamil Nadu National Law University through its Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee (ADRC) cordially invites law students from across the country to participate in its 6th National Med-Arb Competition to be held in offline mode from 23rd February 2024 to 25th February 2024. This distinct hybrid of Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms aims to nurture the future members of the Indian legal fraternity by enabling them to face the dynamic Indian Justice System.

Moreover, Tamil Nadu National Law University is the first law university in India to conduct a competition on the Med-Arb model of dispute resolution. The Med-Arb competition involves a two-step dispute resolution process in which parties attempt to resolve their dispute in mediation, and, if they fail to resolve some or all of their issues, the remaining issues are automatically submitted to arbitration where the arbitrator imposes a binding decision. The competition included a unique element of arbitral award writing which is prepared by the arbitrator/mediator after the oral submissions of both the parties in the arbitration session. TNNLU is the first among all the Universities in the country to organize such a competition on arbitral award writing.

With 20 teams from leading law universities participating in the event, this competition promises an exciting showcase of Mediation and Arbitration Skills.

On the other hand, the respondent side has countered by alleging a violation of Section 16 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, and has brought forth Section 4 of the same act. However, arbitrators have noted attempts by the co-counsel to stray from the central issue. Furthermore, the respondent has cited a relevant case law involving the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to fortify their stance.

Furthermore, the petitioner contends that even if time was not explicitly designated as essential, the respondents failed to notify Mr. Krishna within the stipulated 90-day period as outlined in the Joint Development Agreement (JDA).

The counsel supported their arguments with various case laws and statutes.

In response, the counsel representing the respondent side adeptly refuted the claims and arguments of the claimant side. Sections 55 and 56 of the Indian Contract Act were highlighted, along with provisions of the JDA, to argue against the claim for compensation.

Court Hall-X

Both counsels have delineated the allotted time for the submission of their arguments. The claimant cited Section 56 of the Indian Contract Act, asserting that the respondent’s failure to invoke the force majeure clause was glaring.

In response, the respondent contended that time is not of the essence in the contract, and highlighted COVID-19 as a possible act of God, detailing the logistical and managerial challenges faced.

The requesting party expressed dissatisfaction regarding the Joint Development Agreement (JDA), citing lack of communication, and feeling marginalized in decision-making, resulting in diminished confidence. Counsel Maya confirmed Krishna’s authority to make decisions, proposing voiding the JDA and exploring options for a new contract or division of the residential apartment.

The mediator summarized the points raised, following which the responding party highlighted challenges faced, particularly due to COVID-19 and increased rates, expressing confidence in resolution.

Agenda setting ensued, focusing on amendments to the existing JDA or drafting a new one. Krishna sought clarification on past delays, attributing them to unforeseen operational issues exacerbated by the pandemic. Emphasis was placed on preventing future delays and increasing Krishna’s involvement, recognizing the emotional significance of the project’s residential aspect.

The relevant clause of the JDA was elucidated, with contentions raised regarding the inability to cite multiple intervening events for delays, asserting time as an essence, and advocating for damages. The absence of a force majeure event was highlighted, invoking Section 32 of the Indian Contract Act to argue against delay, alongside addressing fee increases and the application’s associated costs.

Regarding notice, it was affirmed that no intimation was received concerning delays, with the client lacking pertinent knowledge.

Section 55 was invoked to stress the essence of time, highlighting the gravity of loss incurred. The Respondents were deemed liable for compensation, with termination of the contract after a 90-day notice period sought under Sections 56 and 73 of the Contract Act. The Claimant sought a declaration of rightful contract termination.

In response, the Respondents cited Sections 8, 9, and 16 of the Arbitration Act, arguing the applicability of force majeure due to COVID-19 disruptions, supported by relevant case laws and Clause 9.1 of the JDA.

Despite differing opinions on certain issues, such as the division of commercial and residential areas, the parties engaged in constructive dialogue, demonstrating a willingness to find common ground.

However, as the session progressed, judges expressed concerns about the lack of assertiveness and depth in addressing underlying issues, urging for a more proactive approach from the mediators.

The contractual time stipulations were underscored, with the relevance of the Bombay High Court precedent emphasized. The Claimant stressed the imperative of holding parties accountable under the contract and securing damages, citing exceptions to the force majeure clause due to the lack of notice and elaborating on the interpretation of Section 56 by the apex court. The Claimant contended that the ban order, rather than COVID-19, was the primary cause of the delay, highlighting failures to rectify delays in February.

The Respondent countered by asserting a case of force majeure, noting the requirement for notice of a special fact, and elucidating on the automatic extension and 90-day curing period. The essence of the contract was deemed paramount, with no alteration observed in the agreement. It was argued that the impacted parties anticipated potential timeline adjustments, citing restrictions due to lockdown and limited access to the lead architect. The inability to inspect the construction site due to COVID-19 was underscored.

In response, the Claimant raised concerns regarding the unexplained delay on February 11th and questioned the interpretation of paragraph 13 of the proposition.

The claimants were allowed to present their opening statements and arguments. They meticulously outlined the jurisdictional aspects of the dispute and provided a succinct overview of the facts, emphasizing the breach of the JDA as the crux of the matter. Three primary issues were delineated:

1. Whether COVID-19 constitutes a force majeure event – The claimants advanced arguments asserting that the force majeure event preceded the breach and did not cause it. They contended that there has been a continuous breach, supported by authoritative cases from the Supreme Court.

2. Whether the increases in bank sanction and the imposition of a height restriction constitute a policy change – The claimants asserted that the height restriction is not tantamount to a banning order and does not render the contract impossible to perform.

The respondents then provided a brief overview of their position and commenced their opening statement. Their first submission pertained to COVID-19 and the force majeure nature of the event.
