What’s this?


This issue is once again devoted exclusively to case reports. The claim for loss of sperm appears to be the first of its kind to reach the UK courts, and therefore is especially interesting. Although Latin tags were theoretically abolished in the Woolf reforms of 1999, the fact that there is no compact English equivalent for res ipsa loquitur means that this phrase still has legalcurrency, and a rare application of the concept in a clinicalnegligence action rounds matters off.
