  • Vicarious liability: Nightclub alone responsible for doorman's assault

    In Hawley v Luminar Leisure and others [2006] EWCA Civ 18 CA, the Court of Appeal holds that responsibility for controlling a worker passed to his "temporary deemed employer", and it was unsuccessful in its attempt to persuade the court to make a finding of dual vicarious liability.
