    ROLE OF EQUITY IN MISTAKEN TRANSACTIONS*
    by
    CHANCELLOR OF THE HIGH COURT
    SIR TERENCE ETHERTON

    1. This address is not about "the rule in Hastings Bass" as Lord Walker reluctantly continued to call it in Futter v. Futter and Pitt v. Holt.[1] That rule is concerned with trustees who make decisions without having given proper consideration to relevant matters which they ought to have taken into consideration or having taken into account considerations which they ought not to have taken into account.[2]

    2. This address is concerned with causes of action where an essential ingredient is that the claimant has made a mistake. It is essentially concerned with spontaneous mistakes, that is to say mistakes which have not been caused by the culpable conduct of the defendant or others, for example misrepresentation, non-disclosure (where there is a duty to disclose), undue influence, duress, or breach of a fiduciary duty.

    THE EFFECT OF VAGUE CHARGES IN A DOMESTIC INQUIRY*
    by
    JAMIE GOH MOON HOONG

    IN THIS ARTICLE, JAMIE GOH MOON HOONG DISCUSSES THE IMPORTANCE OF CAREFULLY DRAFTING CHARGES IN A DOMESTIC INQUIRY

    A domestic inquiry is a proceeding held by an employer to determine whether or not an employee is guilty of the charges levelled against him. The domestic inquiry provides an accused employee with an opportunity to defend himself against specific charges. Key issues which need to be carefully managed by employers are:

    •       the conduct of an investigation or the fact-finding exercise;

    •       the drafting of charges; and

    •       the appointment of officers in the domestic inquiry.
