In yesterday’s webinar, Sarah Prager and Conor Kennedy were joined by James Riley of Irwin Mitchell, the solicitor for the claimant in X v Kuoni. They discussed the law relating to claims for assaults and other deliberate acts under the 2018 Regulations, and considered the implications of the long-awaited decision of the Supreme Court in X v Kuoni. They discussed:
- 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?
