Legal news – the risk of flying underwear

Dame Kiri has won her court case where she withdrew from a series of planned concerts because she felt there was a risk of being bombarded with flying underwear.  To clarify one key point of the decision, though: this is not authority to justify a party breaching a contract as a result of the risk of flying underwear.  If a member of staff in a nightclub playing Tom Jones you cannot justifiably resign because of the risk of flying underwear, nor if you are an airline attendant on a flight carrying Ralph Fiennes can you resign your position forthwith due to your concerns that Ralph will grab some passing stewardess and the pair of them will be stripped off with pants cast carelessly across the cabin, before you can remark how wooden his brother is in any film you care to mention.  Instead, the judge has decided that Dame Kiri hadn’t actually entered a contract in the first place.  No contract meant no breach.
