Horrocks v. Ford Motor Co Ltd


Court of Appeal

Appeals from orders by Brentwood County Court transferring industrial deafness claims against the Ford Motor Co Liverpool by workers there to Liverpool County Court where the claims could be more conveniently dealt with. Appellants had sued in Brentwood because there were about 1000 similar cases pending in Liverpool & it was thought appellants' claims would be more expeditiously dealt with elsewhere.

HELD: The transfers had been properly made under CCR O. 16 r.1. The court would devise new procedures to ensure these multiplicity of claims were dealt with expeditiously. Appeals dismissed.
