Mullin v Richards [1998] 1 WLR 1304 Court of Appeal

Two 15 year old school girls were fighting with plastic rulers. A ruler snapped and a splinter went into one of the girls eyes causing blindness. The girl brought an action against the other girl for her negligent action.


The girl was only expected to meet the standard of a reasonable 15 year old school girl not that of a reasonable man. She was found not to be in breach of duty.
