    Could you outline all the limits for me please
    Small claims- upto £10,000/ personal injuries upto £1,000/ heard in the county court

    Fast track- cases between £10,000-£25,000/ personal injuries over £1,000/ heard in the county court

    Multi track- cases over £25,000/ heard in the county court if below £100,000/ heard in the high court if over £100,000.

    Hope that helps, the question on the tracks comes up every year... Identify the track of C and what court :-)

    Within Negligence, whats the easiest way to apply 3 risk factors to the scenario? i know Latimer is a given in any scenario
    What do you mean you don't have to apply all 4 risk factors 2 will be sufficient...

    Which procedure? Summary, triable either way indictable? Doesn't really need application just use the name of the defendant...

    Fairly urgent question: Was just looking at the mark schemes for some past papers and there is one where they are talking about assault and it says to may reference to S39 CJA. We haven't covered anything about this, so i was just wondering what the relevance is. Is it where the offence is defined, because we have always learnt that it is defined in common law..

    Just put something like this...

    Assault is a common law offence but there is now reference to it in the CJA 1988 (s39), it is a summary offence heard in the magistrates court and carries a maximum sentence of 6 months or a £5,000 fine.

    Same for battery!

    Do we have to say about the type of offence and sentences as well?? We've always just said, 'The most likely offence for ... to have committed is assault. This is defined in common law. The acts reus of assault is.....'

    [QUOTE=~Cerridwen~;64970033]What cases go with legal causation? I have it down as the Pagett case but that is usually in intervening acts, right?



    I've just got R V Pagett and R V White- which is the one where the D tried to poison his mother with cyanide, but before the poison was able to take affect, she died of a heart attack, so he was not liable for her murder

    Factual causation is Padgett and white.

    Legal causation is substantive and operative cause + intervening acts
    So act of third party - smith
    Vs own act - Roberts
    Act of God
    Then mention thin skull rule

    CAUSATION IN FACT (but for test)
    R V White
    R V Pagett
    INTERVENING ACT (X3)
    act of V
    act of 3rd party
    act of nature
    CAUSATION IN LAW (look at D contribution) = MORE THAN MINIMAL
    R V Smith
    R V Cheshire- which updated R V Smith
    R V Roberts- reasonably forseeable
    R V Williams- actions not reasonably forseeable so D was not liable
    MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE- not usually break chain of causation unless it makes Ds actions appear insignificant (were the actions forseeable? could it break the chain of causation?)
    I dont know if this will help??
