Piepenbrock v London School of Economics and Political Science

Damages – Personal injury. Although the defendant university had breached its duty of care in the way that it had handled the complaints made against the claimant by his graduate teaching assistant, it could not have reasonably foreseen the development of the claimant's depressive illness. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division, dismissed the claimant's claim for damages for psychiatric injury.
