Skipper v Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council & Anor




LTL 15/3/2006; [2006] EWCA Civ 239 2006-03-15

As a matter of principle general damages could be awarded for the frustration, loss of self-confidence and loss of self-esteem resulting from the failure of a school and local authority to identify and ameliorate the effects of dyslexia, and a claim for general damages and for damages by way of lost earning capacity based on such a failure could not be struck out as having no real prospect of success.
