Miners’ Knee Litigation
Following the recent limitation trial, the Group Litigation Order in the Miners’ Knee Litigation has been discharged: the judgment can be read here.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (successor to the liabilities of the National Coal Board) persuaded the Court not to exercise its discretion under s. 33 of the Limitation Act 1980 to allow eight Lead Claimants to proceed out of time. As the Court considered the Lead Claimants to be representative of the Group, the GLO was discharged. From Henderson Chambers, DECC was represented by Andrew Kinnier.
