Abstract

Assesses the Court of Appeal decision in Uzinterimpex JSC v Standard Bank Plc. on whether the claimant was under no duty to mitigate its loss with respect to its claim for damages in conversion on the grounds that: mitigation was linked to contributory negligence, which was precluded from applying to conversion by the Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977 s.11; the cause of action was complete from the time of the converting act and the claimant's subsequent conduct was irrelevant; and conversion had a proprietary base.
