Barclays not liable for alleged sexual assaults during medicals, court rules
More than 100 patients have claimed they were assaulted by doctor between 1968 and 1984
Barclays is not liable for the alleged sexual assault of more than 100 patients by a doctor carrying out medicals on the bank’s behalf, the supreme court has ruled.
The UK’s highest court overturned earlier rulings that the bank was “vicariously liable” for any assault proven to have been carried out by Dr Gordon Bates, who died in 2009 aged 83.
