Employment law cases

Jones v Kaney [2011] UKSC 13 SC

The Supreme Court, the highest court in the UK, overturned the long-standing rule that expert witnesses are immune from liability for damages to parties that have engaged them and to which they owe a duty of care. However, the traditional protection for other non-expert witnesses (such as eyewitnesses) has not been affected by the Supreme Court decision.
