Judgement for the case Lister v Stubbs

D was the foreman for P and placed orders with X in return for a bribe. P brought an action against D to reclaim the bribe via constructive trust. CA denied that a constructive trust existed, saying instead that D was merely under a fiduciary duty in personam to pay over the money as being owed to P.
