Limitation of action - Public authority - Employment relationship
Limitation of action Public authority. The six-month limitation period in s 2 of the Public Authorities Protection Act had no application where the obligation sued upon arose simply out of a relationship with the claimant which would be the same for any non-public person or body, and where there was no question of a public law challenge. Accordingly, the Privy Council, in allowing the appellant's appeal, held that the limitation did not apply to her claim against the government of the British Virgin Islands for personal injuries sustained during her employment as a nurse.
