Even before the court ordered a stay of proceedings for arbitration under the Arbitration Act 1996 s.9, the private and confidential character of proceedings ancillary to the arbitral process ought to be protected so that a stranger to the arbitration and to the proceedings in which a s.9 stay had been ordered was not entitled to access to documents on the court file under CPR r.5.4(5), unless that was necessary to protect or establish the applicant's legal rights or there was some other overriding interest of justice.

[2005] EWHC 818 (Comm)
