On 21 June 2016 the Supreme Court granted Lady Brownlie permission to proceed with her cross-appeal in her claim against Four Seasons Holding Incorporated. Her cross-appeal is related to that part of her claim which the Court of Appeal declared she could not proceed with, namely her claims and that of the Estate of her deceased Husband, Sir Ian Brownlie QC, which were founded in tort. This issue has implications for those injuries sustained by claimants in foreign jurisdictions outside the EU. This issue will be determined by the Supreme Court in May 2017.
(N.B. Lady Brownlie was successful before the Court of Appeal in relation to her claim and that of the Estate which were founded in contract).
