This was an action for damages brought by the purchaser of a bookshop business in deceit against the seller and in negligence against a firm of accountants who had verified false figures provided by the seller. The trial judge gave judgment for the defendants on the basis that the plaintiff had suffered no loss, but this decision was reversed by the Court of Appeal. Both defendants were held to have caused the plaintiff substantial loss.
