Nobu Su anticipates another Clarkson court battle soon

An appeals judge in the UK has given Nobu Su another chance to take broker Clarkson Platou to court.

Su, the boss of Taiwan’s Today Makes Tomorrow (TMT), had his case against Clarkson Platou Futures thrown out in February.

Su has been trying to claim $37m from Clarksons from a 2008 derivatives contract breach, one of many ongoing legal battles the embattled tycoon has launched in recent years.

Earlier this year, Su told Splash that “Clarkson cooked documents”, something strongly denied by the UK-headquartered broking giant.

Despite the setback in February a judge has now given Su another chance to take on the broker. The judge ruled in the appeal that the earlier High Court ruling “went too far in giving judgment summarily”.

Su told Splash that he anticipates another court battle kicking off against Clarkson Platou at the end of this year or the start of 2018.
