oa De Jure - Redefining the rules for the admissibility of evidence in the interpretation of contracts
Dexgroup (Pty) Ltd v Trustco Group International (Pty) Ltd 2013 6 SA 520 (SCA) : recent case law
Any contractual dispute invariably requires an interpretation of the contract concerned to determine the obligations of the parties involved. The interpretation of any contract necessarily begins with a question regarding the sources which parties, their lawyers and presiding officers in court or arbitration may consider to ascertain the nature, scope, extent, meaning and practical implications of that contract. This in turn raises the question of the admissibility of evidence in the interpretation of contracts.
