[2001] UKHL 22

As a matter of legal principle, the employers of the warden of a school boarding house who sexually abused boys in his care could be vicariously liable for the torts of their employee if there was a sufficiently close connection between the torts and the employment. ST v North Yorkshire County Council (1999) IRLR 98 overruled.
