    • House of Lords
    • 08 Feb 1990

    What emerges is that, in addition to the foreseeability of damage, necessary ingredients in any situation giving rise to a duty of care are that there should exist between the party owing the duty and the party to whom it is owed a relationship characterised by the law as one of "proximity" or "neighbourhood" and that the situation should be one in which the court considers it fair, just and reasonable that the law should impose a duty of a given scope upon the one party for the benefit of the other.

    • House of Lords
    • 03 May 1972

    The words are a recognition of the fact that a limited company is more than a mere judicial entity, with a personality in law of its own: that there is room in company law for recognition of the fact that behind it, or amongst it, there are individuals, with rights, expectations and obligations inter se which are not necessarily submerged in the company structure.

    • Court of Appeal
    • 29 Jul 1988

    He naturally, and rightly, regards the company as his client. It is attached to and forms part of the company's accounts (ss.238 (3) 239). A copy of the company's accounts (including the auditor's report) must be sent to every member (s.240). Any member of the company, even if not entitled to have a copy of the accounts sent to him, is entitled to be furnished with a copy of the company's last accounts on demand and without charge (s.246).

    • 28 Mar 1961

    Then the question is what figure should be taken to represent the stock-in-trade. If it consists of articles bought for resale the answer is obvious—the price the taxpayer paid for them or their cost to him. If market value were taken that would generally include an element of profit, and it is a cardinal principle that profit should not be taxed until realised: if the market value fell before the article was sold the profit might never be realised.

  • Griffiths v J. P. Harrison (Watford) Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 15 Mar 1962

    From this sort of consideration there has developed an approach that I consider to be well established on the authorities, which is to take the claimed programmed computer, and ask what it contributes to the art over and above the fact that it covers a programmed computer. If there is a contribution outside the list of excluded matter, then the invention is patentable, but if the only contribution to the art lies in excluded subject matter, it is not patentable.

  • Re Jermyn Street Turkish Baths Ltd
    • Court of Appeal
    • 05 May 1971
