UKSC Judgment – Peninsula Securities v Dunne Stores

Henderson Chambers Alerter by Peter Susman QC

In the Peninsula case [2020] UKSC 36 (judgment given on 19 August 2020) the Supreme Court unanimously decided to invoke its rarely exercised power to depart from an earlier and otherwise binding precedent, in this case the 1966 decision of the House of Lords in Esso Petroleum Co Ltd v. Harper’s Garage (Stourport) Ltd, reported at [1968] AC 269. The appeal in the Peninsula case was from the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland, but the decision of the Supreme Court is of course binding also in England and Wales.
