What is required to postpone the start of the prescriptive clock in a post-ICL Plastics era?

11 November 2015

In the case of David T Morrison & Co Ltd v ICL Plastics Ltd, the Supreme Court ruled that the prescriptive clock starts ticking when a creditor becomes aware of the occurrence of loss, regardless of whether that loss was known to have been cause by negligence. In the recent case of Heather Capital LLP v Burness Paull & Williamson LLP, in one of only a handful of decisions since ICL, the Court of Session considered the application of section 6(4) and section 11(3) of the Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973.
