    caparo case


    The Caparo case, known formally as Caparo Industries plc v Dickman, was a landmark ruling in English tort law. It established the three-part test for establishing a duty of care: foreseeability, proximity, and fairness. The case involved an investment firm, Caparo Industries plc, suing their auditor, Dickman, for negligent auditing. The House of Lords ruled that Dickman owed no duty of care to Caparo because there was no direct relationship between them. This case significantly shaped the landscape of negligence law, emphasizing the importance of foreseeability and proximity in establishing a duty of care between parties.
