The Court of Appeal has overturned a High Court decision (see here) on the scope of a compromise agreement indemnity for legal costs in defending proceedings as a result of his job, ruling that this was not limited to the lawful responsibilities of the employee’s post and would apply to alleged crimes committed while performing the job. The case highlights the importance of tight drafting of indemnities to reflect the parties’ true intentions. (Coulson v News Group Newspapers, CoA)
