In Mattis v Pollock (t/a Flamingo's Nightclub), the Court of Appeal holds that a nightclub owner was vicariously liable for the actions of his door supervisor whose aggression culminated in the stabbing of a customer of the club outside the club premises, notwithstanding that, before the assault, the employee had left the club, returned to his home to arm himself with a knife and had then attacked the customer in an act of personal vengeance.
