Unjust enrichment and an ‘ancient’ Guernsey Tort


This article considers the findings of both the Royal Court and the
Court of Appeal in Guernsey in the recent property related tort case of
Hindle v Kitching. It explores the wider legal ramifications of the
courts’ findings including how, in certain significant respects,
Guernsey tort law and choice of law has failed to keep pace with
developments elsewhere. The case is also a useful example of the
progress of the law of unjust enrichment in Jersey and Guernsey.
