Sir Elton granted appeal in PwC case

Sir Elton John has been granted leave to appeal a £14m negligence claim against Big Five firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, which the popstar lost in the High Court in April.

His right to appeal the ruling is limited only to PwC and does not apply to Andrew Haydon, the former managing director of his management company John Reid Enterprises, which Sir Elton also sued in April.

This is the second time Sir Elton has appealed the ruling. In June this year the musician’s leave to appeal was rejected, leaving Sir Elton with legal costs estimated at £8m.

At the time, Justice Ferris ruled against the appeal on the grounds that it would have little chance of success.

Sir Elton sued the Big Five firm and Haydon for negligence in managing his business affairs. He also attempted to claim back tour costs he said he should never have paid.
