In this webinar Sarah Prager and Conor Kennedy are joined by James Riley of Irwin Mitchell, the solicitor for the claimant in X v Kuoni. They discuss the law relating to claims for assaults and other deliberate acts under the 2018 Regulations, particularly in the light of the decision in X v Kuoni, handed down by the Supreme Court on 30th July.
Will the decision in X v Kuoni affect the position under the 2018 Regulations? Or does it turn on an interpretation of the 1992 Regulations?
Would Mrs X succeed in her claim if it were brought today under the 2018 Regulations?
And does the law recognise a higher duty on hoteliers than other suppliers in relation to the protection of guests in their care?
