Srivatsa v Secretary of State for Health and another

Estoppel – Res judicata. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant general practitioner was estopped from pursuing his claim in the High Court for breach of contract and tortious conspiracy, in circumstances where he had previously brought a claim in the employment tribunal, and the previous claim, which had been based upon the same factual foundation as the present claim, had been dismissed upon withdrawal by the claimant.
