New to this edition from the Supreme Court:
  • Robinson v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire on the duty of care owed by the police to members of the public when effecting an arrest of a suspected offender; and, together with Poole BC v GN, on the role of the “Caparo tripartite test” for the existence of a duty of care, stressing the importance of taking an incremental approach to novel negligence claims
  • Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis v DSD holding that policy arguments about the risk of defensive policing or the diversion of resources from police work to compensation claims were not relevant to whether the police owe an operational duty under ECHR art.3 when investigating criminal offences and that serious defects in the investigation of crimes of violence could amount to a breach of that duty
  • Dryden v Johnson Matthey Plc on the meaning of “damage” in personal injury claims
  • Steel v NRAM Ltd (formerly NRAM Plc) on the duty of care owed by a solicitor to a third party in claims for negligent misrepresentation
  • JSC BTA Bank v Khrapunov on what constitutes “unlawful means” for the purposes of the tort of conspiracy

  • Stocker v Stocker on the correct approach to determining the meaning of words posted to a social media site (Facebook) for the purposes of the tort of defamation
  • James-Bowen v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis holding that an employer does not owe a duty of care to employees to defend a civil action against the employer in a manner that protects the employees from economic or reputational harm
  • Playboy Club London Ltd v Banca Nazionale Del Lavoro SpA on the Hedley Byrne duty of care owed by a bank when giving a credit reference to an agent of a casino, where the bank had no knowledge of the casino
  • Morris-Garner v One Step (Support) Ltd on the assessment of damages in lieu of an injunction under Lord Cairns’ Act, and holding that “negotiating damages” (previously referred to as “Wrotham Park damages”) are compensatory and not intended to remove gains from the defendant
  • R. (on the application of Jalloh (formerly Jollah)) v Secretary of State for the Home Department on the relationship between the tort of false imprisonment the concept of deprivation of liberty within art.5 of the European Convention on Human Rights

  • R. (Mott) v Environment Agency on a fisherman’s rights under art.1 Protocol 1 of the ECHR XX v Whittington Hospital NHS Trust where the claimant was entitled to recover the reasonable costs of entering commercial surrogacy arrangements abroad, although such arrangements would be contrary to the Surrogacy Arrangements Act 1985
  • Re D (a child) (residence order: deprivation of liberty) holding that a parent could not authorise the detention of a 16- or 17-year old minor who lacked capacity that would amount to a deprivation of liberty Welsh Ministers v PJ imposing conditions in a community treatment order which would amount to a deprivation of the patient’s liberty would breach art.5 ECHR
  • Secretary of State for Justice v MM neither the tribunal nor the Secretary of State are permitted to impose conditions amounting to detention or a deprivation of liberty, in relation to a conditionally discharged restricted patient, even if the patient consented
