Spuilzie today.

Anderson, Craig


Craig Anderson


Assesses the legal doctrine of spuilzie, focusing on the Outer House ruling in Calor Gas Ltd v Express Fuels (Scotland) Ltd on whether a gas distributor had breached a dealership agreement with a gas supplier in failing to give proper notice when terminating the agreement, and in collecting from customers used gas cylinders post-termination. Considers the right of possession. Questions whether spuilzie is still relevant to the law.
