In October 2004 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee, recalling that in July 2003 five oyster farmers had commenced summary proceedings against the shipowner, the insurer and the 1992 Fund before the Court of Commerce in Marennes d’Oleron requesting provisional compensation payments of approximately £272 000, noted that the Court had in July 2004 rendered a summary judgement rejecting the request on the grounds that the claimants had not provided sufficient evidence to justify summary proceedings and had invited the claimants to submit their claims to the Claims Handling Office in Bordeaux.
