The House of Lords is deciding whether to allow a property company's appeal over a breach of contract and negligence action it brought against accountants Cape & Dalgleish. In the High Court, in March 1997, Judge Rivlin ordered Cape & Dalgleish to pay IM Properties #500,000 damages. But in May this year the Court of Appeal reduced that sum to #413,069.
