Colville v Seventy Thirty Ltd

Contract – Breach of contract. The appellant succeeded on his appeal against a district judge's order, which effectively upheld a claim by the appellant's former employer (a matchmaking company) that he had breached his contractual obligations of confidence by assisting the company's former client to bring a claim (the claim) against the company, alleging misrepresentation. The Queen's Bench Division held that the district judge had failed to make sufficient findings of fact to support his decision on causation, in circumstances where his judgement suggested that he had considered that the confidential information had been provided after the commencement of the claim.
