Donoghue v stevenson is one of the most famous cases in scottish legal history. ◦ House of lords founded the modern tort of negligence. ◦ Also known as "paisley snails", or "snail in the bottle“ casepaisley snails Donoghue, nee M' Alister, ordered and paid for a pear and ice cream. (which the ingredient include the ginger beer). ◦ the ginger beer contain decomposition snail. ◦ only donoghue drank the water. ◦ donoghue later complained of stomach pain and her doctor diagnosed her as having gastroenteritis and being in a state of severe shock
LEGAL ANALYSIS ◦ Donogh had not ordered or paid for the drink herself, so there was no contractual relationship between donoghue and the cafe owner.cafe ◦ Walter leechman of WG Leechman & Co in Glasglow's West George street, "the only solicitor in the world who would have taken donoghue case”. ◦ leechman was already an expert about this case. He already an expert on the danger of drinking ginger beer. He tried to liability against A.G Barr. (dead mouse in the bottle) ◦ Donoghue’s legal team- agreed provide their services free, she must ensure the side costs when she lost.- not required if she pauper.
Lord Atkin’s “neighbour” principle Lord Atkin’s ◦ deliver his speech, derived from the christisn principle of “loving your neighbour”. ◦ The lawyer ask about “who is my neighbour”. (people that affected by your act and you must take responsibility. From the decision of court, the practical effect of this case was to provide individuals with a remedy against supppliers of consumer products even where the complainant had no privity of contract with those individual or company
No contractual relationship The manufacturer hadn’t fraudulently misinterpreted bottle contentbottle Manufacturer owed plaintiff duty to take reasonable care Gain status of pauperpauper Call for removal of the manufacturer protection
Donoghue’s friend is unknown but only referred as “she”. The animal in the bottle was uncertain whether it was a snail or slug The manufacturer was liable for any damage if he fails to exercise reasonable care.
1 st (1929): ◦ Stevensen won the case twice because no legal basis to claim for damages against a manufacturer where no contract exist. = earlier decision in Muller v AG Barr (dead mouse in ginger beer)
2 nd (1931): ◦ After House of Lord granted the pauper status. ◦ Lord Atkin – Loving your neighbour (in House of Lord) ◦ Donoghue’s legal team won by the smallest margins (3/5) ◦ Donoghue’s executor settled out of court, not for the original claim of £500
We agreed with the court’s decision. A decomposed snail in Scotland was the humble beginning of the modern English and Scots law of negligence. This case appeared in Base on Lord Atkins ‘ neighbour principle’, it showed the decision highly influenced by Bible – love your neighbour. These is no such legal acts and regulation existed related to ‘duty of care’ during that time.
