    Ali v Courtaulds Textiles Ltd (1999) 52 BMLR 129 CA (0 other reports)

In Irshad Ali v Courtaulds Textiles Ltd, the Court of Appeal has allowed an appeal by a retired cotton-mill worker whose claim for damages for deafness was dismissed for being out of time. The Court says that the worker's "personal circumstances" meant that he was isolated and that the "date of knowledge" of his injury was therefore later than it might otherwise have been.
