Court: House of Lords
Date of Judgment: 25.04.02
David Drake

A solicitor undertook the drafting of an agreement as a deliberate course of conduct. Through inadvertence, he made a negligent error in the way the agreement was worded. Held that, for "deliberate commission of a breach of duty" to be made out for the purposes of s. 32(1)(b) of the Limitation Act 1980, it was necessary that the defendant knew that he was committing a breach of duty.
