Limitation of action Accrual of cause of action. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, considered an appeal against an order dismissing eight lead claims made by miners who had contracted osteoarthritis in their knees through their work. The Court held that, while the case against allowing the eight lead claims to proceed was overwhelming, it would be appropriate to suspend judgment against the other claimants, and to discharge the Group Litigation Order in the matter.
