This Week in the UKSC – w/c 28th March 2022  

On Tuesday 29th March the Supreme Court will hear the case of The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association – Forces Help and another (Respondents) v Allgemeines Krankenhaus Viersen GmbH (Appellant) on appeal from [2020] EWCA Civ 926. The court will consider the main issue of whether the Civil Liability (Contribution) Act 1978 has extra-territorial effect, and if it does, whether this would allow a contribution claim to be brought under the 1978 Act despite the contribution claim being governed by German law rather than English law.
