This was a second appeal. In the High Court the 1 st respondent successfully sued the
appellant, the 2 nd respondent, 3 rd respondent and 4 th respondent for damages caused to his car
in a collision. The cause of action was founded in negligence on the part of the 3 rd
respondent when driving the appellant's motor vehicle in the course of his employment as
her servant or agent. The appellant appealed to the Court of Appeal against the High Court
decision. She lost the appeal. Consequently, she appealed to this court.
