High Court Judge OKs Calvert to Amend Negligence Claim

27 February 2008

One week into the case, a High Court Judge has permitted Graham Calvert to amend his negligence claim against William Hill.

Calvert now seeks personal injury damages in addition to his original claim for compensation of the £2.1 million he lost gambling with William Hill after putting himself on a self-exclusion list.

Calvert said he has lost his wife, his health and his livelihood. His lawyer, Anneliese Day, describes William Hill's failure to prevent Calvert from gambling as "negligent encouragement and inducement," adding that her client suffers from a medical condition.

Justice Michael Briggs' action does not find William Hill guilty of negligence, but it significantly increases the amount the company may have to pay Calvert should it be found liable.

The hearing continues, and a final ruling is still forthcoming.

Calvert has yet to specify the amount he's seeking in damages.
