Subject: ODG: Quotation on Special Damage

Dear Colleagues:

Do any of you have any recollection of ever having read (or written) something like the following in relation to the special damage requirement in the tort of public nuisance:

The House of Lords has twice required damage that was virtually unique to the plaintiff (citing Ricket and Oglivy).

I thought that the quote had come from Fleming but I cannot seem to find it there and my searches in other sources have thus far turned up nothing.

Any assistance is much appreciated.  Please feel free to contact me off-list.
