Rugby case

Yesterday judgment was handed down by the Court of Appeal in a case in which I appeared called Mountford v Newlands School in which a school was found vicariously liable for injuries caused in a rugby match when a teacher played someone over the age group for the match. Since the Bar Council Code of Conduct stipulates that I cannot express a personal opinion upon the facts or issues arising in a case in which I have appeared (save in an educational or academic context), I shall refrain but instead refer simply to the judgment itself which I have put online here. The photo is of my friend Richard Pool-Jones playing for England.
