Bryen and Langley Ltd v Boston: CA 29 Jul 2005

The special facts surrounding the agreement of the standard term at issue were such that the court held that it could not possibly say that there had been a breach of the principle of fair dealing and that rendered it unnecessary for the court to consider whether on an objective assessment, the term caused a significant imbalance between the parties to the detriment of the consumer.
