Stuck on this problem here; hoping someone could help me out. Case relates to unintentional tort law / negligence John, a professional tennis player, takes his accountant Esther to lunch at one of his restaurants to discuss life on the circuit and also his business affairs. Esther is aware of Johnr’s ownership of restaurants, and tells him that recent taxation changes have been a disaster for restaurants. She says that proposed tax changes will make real estate, particularly restaurants, a poor investment and that exiting owners should sell as soon as possible. If a restaurant cannot be sold, she advises that the only course of action is to incur expenditure which will attract high rates of depreciation for tax purposes. One of these expenditures is the installation of child care facilities in each restaurant. John is alarmed at what Esther has told him and, unable to sell two restaurants, he installs child care facilities. Unfortunately Esther was confused and the expenditure incurred by John will not attract a tax deduction because she forgot that the tax deduction did not apply to restaurants owned before the dated of the announcement of the new proposal. Only new property purchases attract the tax deduction. John told David, another professional tennis player, about Esther’s advice. David immediately sold his restaurants at a very low price. Unfortunately David lost his sound investments. While practicing his tennis at the Local Tennis Centre, John slipped on some chewing gum left on the playing surface. He injured a muscle in his leg and was treated at a Sports Medicine Clinic. The doctor from the Clinic has told him if he does not play tennis for seven weeks, he should make a complete recovery. John was to play at the new Indoor Stadium and had negotiated a contract for appearance money at the tournament of $5,000. Are David and John entitled to compensation for their losses, and if so, from whom? Would really appreciate if anyone could help me in providing a legal solution for this problem!
