Form over Substance


There is a short note by Wendy Hopkins and Stephen Turner (Beachcroft LLP) in the new issue of the Solicitors Journal on the recent House of Lords ruling in Harding v Wealands (2006) UKHL 32; (2006) 3 WLR 83 (HL) [see this post for the judgment].

The article focuses on whether the relevant provisions of the New South Wales Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 were procedural and should be excluded when determining the quantification of damages for personal injury.
