BERMUDA

SUPREME COURT

PROCEDURE – INTERPLEADER – STAY OF PROCEEDINGS – LIFTING PRIOR STAY

The Defendants, based in Switzerland and Lichtenstein respectively, were in dispute in Switzerland as to which of them should receive certain royalty payments held by the Plaintiff. The Plaintiff, a Bermuda company, placed the royalties in escrow and in 2004 commenced an interpleader action in the Bermuda Courts to determine which defendant was the proper recipient.
