Santa & Elves Guilty of Negligence in U.K.

From Andrew Dickinson at the University of Sydney comes news of Santa's legal troubles:

On December 14, 2011, the London Civil Court of Appeal in Ducasse v Melbry Events held that Santa and/or one of his Elves had been negligent in failing to spot an icicle on the floor of his workshop over which the plaintiff grandmother tripped, causing a leg injury. The grandmother was visiting Santa's workshop at the London store, Selfridges's, with her son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.

Neil Foster (Newcastle) sent the following link regarding the case.

Happy Holidays to all!
