In Focus has now been granted permission to appeal against the decision of the High Court in Clark v In Focus.

Contrary to the 2010 decision in Andrews v SBJ Benefit Consultants, on 19 December 2012 the High Court in Clark held that a Claimant who has accepted a FOS award under the statutory scheme is also entitled to bring subsequent court proceedings to recover the balance of their loss.

As previously discussed here and here, this is a decision with far reaching consequences. We will follow the progress of the appeal with interest, and report further.
