Gemma McGungle succeeds in fundamental dishonesty appeal heard in the High Court, Queen’s Bench Division.
The case was reported in the Law Society Gazette: Convicted attacker may claim negligence – despite dishonesty | News | Law Gazette
“In Cojanu v Essex Partnership University NHS Trust Mr Justice Ritchie ruled that claimant Dorinel Cojanu’s dishonesty about his crime was not fundamental to either liability or quantum in the civil claim. The judge said all citizens were equally entitled to come before the courts and that the defence of fundamental dishonesty was not to be used as a ‘credibility filter’ for those with previous convictions.”
