The appeal was a preliminary hearing of two points in respect of an Award served by Mr Antino and a surveyor appointed by Mr Antino under s.10(4) on behalf of the Building Owners the Appellants. HHJ Luba QC sitting in the Cental London County Court held "In my judgment the Award is valid, the use of s.10(4) was the appropriate procedure given the Building Owners refusal to appoint a surveyor. A dispute had arisen that satisfied s.10 procedures, The Award is an impressive piece of work".

In the appeal of an ex-parte Award served by Mr Antino on behalf of the respondents, HHJ Platt held "In my judgment the respondent is correct. Mr Antino’s contention that “it is not a matter for negotiation directly between one surveyor and the other surveyors client”. Since I have determined that the ex-parte Award was valid the court is still able to determine the Award and under the statutory powers to modify the Award if appropriate.
I am grateful to Mr Antino suggesting that I now determine the Award issue “I accept that Mr Antino’s hourly rate is not in my judgment unreasonable. It follows that the fee set out in the ex-parte Award had been properly justified and I therefore award Mr Antino’s fees”.

"Mr Antino is a palpable witness, Mr Antino's explanation of the unique attributes of the "Thompson Plan" greatly assisted the Court to understand the location and extent of the claimants boundaries. Mr Antino's expertise as a master mason persuaded the Court that the boundary "wall" was a retaining wall wholly within the claimant's land and not as contested by the defendants the remains of a previous structure on their land "
