Woolworths seeks leave to appeal against court decision

6:24 pm on 15 August 2008

Woolworths is to seek leave to appeal against a recent court decision blocking it from bidding for The Warehouse.

The Court of Appeal last month overturned an earlier High Court decision clearing the way for Woolworths and rival supermarket operator Foodstuffs to make a takeover bid for the discount retailer.

Woolworths said an application to seek leave to appeal the Court of Appeal decision would be filed in the Supreme Court shortly.
