Donoghue v. Stevenson (1932)
1 In 1928 a friend bought May Donoghue a bottle of giniger beer, could not see the contents within the bottle. Drank majority but when poured in the glass discovered a decomposed snail.
2 Donoghue suffered from illness & shock from the drink, sued the company Stevenson
3 Originally there had to be a diret buy from the manufacturer, before the buyer could sue the seller
4 There was no relationship within this case as Donoghue's friend had purchased the bottle not directly from Stevenson but from a cafe.
5 Case went to an appeal to the House of Lords, delivered a decision favour Donoghue 3-2. The Judgment was delivered by Lord Atkin where the judgment was accepted as the ratio decidendi of the case and therefore consttitute the binding precedent
