The Case

The claimant had been summarily expelled from the pop group Oasis in 1995. His action against the defendant solicitors who in 1993 had negotiated a recording agreement to which all the then members of the group were party was held to be time barred, since in the circumstances, the cause of action had accrued when the agreement had been executed, and not when the claimant had been expelled from the group.
