Bunkers and The Res Cogitans: leave to appeal

Hot news: the curious decision in The Res Cogitans [2015] EWCA 1058, to the effect that a sale of bunkers on reservation of title terms for immediate consumption was not a contract for the sale of goods (a decision commented on earlier in this blog on October 22, 2015) is to be appealed to the Supreme Court. Permission was given yesterday. See http://www.hfw.com/OW-Bunker-test-case-February-2016.
