Misrepresentation – Negligent misrepresentation. The respondents were the owners of a grouse moor, over which commercial shooting took place. The appellant (the company) had been formed by E and his wife as a vehicle for entering into contract with the respondents for the lease of the moor. The company unsuccessfully brought proceedings, alleging that it had been induced to enter into the contract by negligent misrepresentation. The Supreme Court, in allowing the company's appeal, held that the respondents had owed a duty of care to the company and to E, which they had breached and that, accordingly, the company was entitled to recover damages for any loss suffered as a result of that breach. The case was remitted to the Court of Session for further procedure.
