Briggs & Forrester Electrical v Governors of Southfield School for Girls
Citation: BLR 468 TCC
Nature of case:
Already reported in CILL, the case concerned alleged asbestos contamination by electrical contractors, leading to closure of the School. The TCC had to consider the extent to which disclosure should be granted against the School in favour of the defendant contractors. The court held that it would exercise its discretion in favour of an order for disclosure of quantum documents, but not for a wider order, since the parties were still operating under the pre-action protocol.
