Shelbourne v Cancer Research UK  EWHC 842
Office party accident did not lead to vicarious liability
On 7 December 2012, a Christmas party was held at the Cambridge Research Institute of Cancer Research UK (CRUK). The Institute occupied premises at the Li Ka Shing Centre, which CRUK leased from the University of Cambridge. Each year a different department took responsibility for organising the party, using volunteer members of staff. In 2012 it was the turn of the Genomics Department, headed by Mr James Hadfield.
