Port Line v benefit Line [1958]

Another charterparty case.
Diplock J stated Strathcona was
wrongly decided, but held that even if it was correct plaintiff could not use
it to bring claim, as in present case defendant had no knowledge of plaintiff’s
rights at time of purchase.
[Thus Strathcona principle only
applies where there is actual knowledge by purchaser at time of purchase of
charterer’s rights]
