UK: England and Wales: companies cannot recover aggravated damages

The Court of Appeal gave judgment earlier today in Eaton Mansions (Westminster) Ltd v Stinger Compania De Inversion S.A. [2013] EWCA Civ 1308 and held that a company could not recover aggravated damages (i.e., damages for injury to feelings in respect of a wrong committed against it). In doing so the court held that Messenger Newspapers Group Ltd v National Graphical Association (1982) [1984] IRLR 397 had, in this regard, been wrongly decided.
