    I HEREBY ASSIGN TO THEE, ABSOLUTELY
    by
    CLAUDIA CHEAH+
    WITTER YEE+

    Claudia Cheah and Witter Yee examine a recent decision on an absolute assignment of rights relating to land.

    In the recent case of Damai Freight (M) Sdn Bhd v. Affin Bank Berhad (unreported), the Federal Court was called upon to answer the following question of law:

    “Whether a lender having an absolute assignment of rights to land may realise his security under the terms of the assignment, where the document of title to the land was issued subsequently, without the need to resort to the remedies under the National Land Code, 1965.”

    FACTS

    This case concerns a piece of land located in Port Klang, Selangor Darul Ehsan (“Land”) which was to be alienated by the State Government of Selangor to Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (“PKNS”). Pending the issuance of a title to the Land, PKNS entered into an Agreement to Lease dated 28 November 1988 (“the Principal Agreement”) whereby it granted a lease over the Land to the appellant for 30 years.

  3. THE DUTY OF CARE OF PUBLIC AUTHORITIES: TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE OR ABOUT RIGHT?* [Read excerpt]

    THE DUTY OF CARE OF PUBLIC AUTHORITIES: TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE OR ABOUT RIGHT?*
    by
    LORD DYSON, MASTER OF THE ROLLS

    To be asked to give this lecture in memory of Richard Davies was, for me, a truly poignant honour. An honour, because it has become established as one of the most prestigious annual lectures on the legal scene. And poignant, because Dickie welcomed my arrival at what is now 39 Essex Street in 1986 with all the warmth and commitment for which he was well known and for which he was loved by so many of his friends and admirers. He was a brilliant advocate. He brought to his advocacy a remarkable passion and intensity. Shades of grey were not for him. Not even 50 shades of grey. He painted in vivid colours. He had huge expertise in the field of personal injury law. His early death was a terrible loss to the legal profession. He is greatly missed to this day.

    Personal injury law has become increasingly complex in recent years. Some of the issues that have troubled the courts have been peculiar to personal injury litigation. The law reports are replete with tricky points relating to the assessment of damages in that area of the law. But questions of wider application have also arisen in personal injury litigation. Take, for example, the vexed issue of causation, which was once thought of as being essentially one of fact, otherwise known as a “jury question”. Some of the most teasing of the causation questions that have arisen in recent times have been decided in personal injury cases. And of perhaps even more general importance is the fundamental issue of whether a duty of care is owed and the whole question of immunity from suit. This too has as much relevance to personal injury practitioners as it does to those who practice in other areas of litigation. I wish to devote my lecture to this topic, with particular reference to the circumstances in which a public authority owes a duty of care in negligence. This is a huge subject in a developing area of the law. There are many cases, and, as is so often the case, many of them cannot be reconciled with each other. This is fertile territory for academics; but less attractive for lawyers trying to advise their clients and to hard-pressed fist instance judges who have to make sense of and apply the law.
