Photo Productions v Securicor

[1980] 1 All ER 556

Case summary last updated at 02/01/2020 09:58 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Photo Productions v Securicor

 NB “death knell” for fundamental breach doctrine (doctrine that where a fundamental condition of the contract is breached, no exemption/limitation clauses, no matter how explicitly intended to apply, can reduce/extinguish the damages that would normally be owed). Also exemption clause not unreasonable under UCTA since D should have had insurance anyway, while a security team might have had more difficulty in finding insurance.
