McGill v Sports and Entertainment Media Group and others

Contract – Agency agreement. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division held in an appeal by the claimant football agent in relation to inducing a breach of contract with a football player that the trial judge had erred in his approach to the issues of loss and causation, and that the claimant was entitled to an award of damages on the basis of loss of the opportunity to earn a fee under a written agency agreement when the player's transfer to Bolton was completed. The matter would be remitted to the trial judge to assess the value of the lost opportunity.
