Anglia TV v Reed

[1972] 1 QB 60

Case summary last updated at 04/01/2020 14:24 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Anglia TV v Reed

 Anglia contracted with Reed to be in a TV movie.  Reed breached after he found out he was double-booked.  Anglia sued for reliance damages, including expenses incurred before the contract was made.  CA ruled that expenses made on reliance could be claimed, even though the expenses occurred prior to making the contract. The CA said that Ps cannot claim both lost profits and expenses, but can claim reliance-expenses where lost profit cannot be proven.
