Economic loss Closing Pandora's Box

Economic loss Closing Pandora's Box Five years ago, Junior Books v Veitchi 1983 1 AC 520 21 SS 58 was feared by professionals to be the opening salvo by the courts in an attack which would expand the scope of tort rights at the expense of the sanctity of contractual arrangements. Since then, however, most courts have found ways of ignoring, sidestepping or rewriting that infamous House of Lords judgment. Recent decisions by the Court of Appeal provide strong evidence that the most farreaching implications of Junior Books have been resisted. Indeed, it will be seen that the relationship of tort and contract may be even less favourable to Plaintiffs today than it was in the period immediately prior to that landmark. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Structural Survey Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Five years ago, Junior Books v Veitchi 1983 1 AC 520 21 SS 58 was feared by professionals to be the opening salvo by the courts in an attack which would expand the scope of tort rights at the expense of the sanctity of contractual arrangements. Since then, however, most courts have found ways of ignoring, sidestepping or rewriting that infamous House of Lords judgment. Recent decisions by the Court of Appeal provide strong evidence that the most farreaching implications of Junior Books have been resisted. Indeed, it will be seen that the relationship of tort and contract may be even less favourable to Plaintiffs today than it was in the period immediately prior to that landmark.
