Judgement for the case Henderson v Merrett

 Ps entered a syndicate whereby Ds would manage their funds. Some contracted directly with fund managers, while others had a contract to join the syndicate and their relationship with a fund manager was through the medium of a sub-agency agreement. HL held that the more “indirect” plaintiff could still claim for tort damages as the relationship was proximate enough.
