Royscot Trust v Rogerson [1991]

Facts

  • Under an agreement for the sale of a car, a finance company had been induced by a negligently made misrepresentation into paying out too much money

Issue

  • Could damages be claimed under s 2(1) of the Misrepresentation Act?

Decision

  • Yes

Reasoning

  • ‘So liable’ in s  2(1) of the Misrepresentation Act 1967 allows for damages to be limited and awarded in the same way as fraud damages where the defendant may have only arguably been negligent – bad law?
