Liability of trustees in bankruptcy: important new Court of Appeal case
| 8th June 2017
The liability of trustees in bankruptcy to bankrupts is a curiously under-developed area of law. There has been a lack of clarity the circumstances in which a trustee can be liable to a bankrupt personally (rather than liable for losses to the bankrupt’s estate). However, this issue came before the Court of Appeal last month (judgment handed down 25 May 2017).
