Palmer v Muir [2014] EWCA Civ 309

Palmer v Muir [2014] EWCA Civ 309

The case started before a District Judge before being granted permission to appeal. It was lost initially on appeal before a Circuit Judge in Teeside. There was then a rare but successful second appeal. The issue was whether the actual seller of a horse could revert to being an agent as a defence. The Court of Appeal agreed on the argument that had been run from the outset by Philip, in that the seller absolutely could not do so (with Mark Anderson QC). The case was instructed by Jacqui Fulton Equine Law.
