Ilott v The Blue Cross and Others

Ilott v The Blue Cross and Others

21 March 2017

This landmark judgment by the Supreme Court handed down on 15 March 2017 limits the claims that can be made under the Inheritance Act and substantially reduces the previous award made by the Court of the Appeal.

The detailed ruling by the Supreme Court takes a strict interpretation of the Inheritance Act and is very much in line with older court decisions on the subject.
