The case is really interesting. I'm from Spain and I have studied this case as Law of Torts in the University. But I can't understand why the case is called "Guille v. Swan", when Swan sued Guille for the damages. It should be "Swan v. Guille", shouldn't it.

Thank you very much for the entry.

Swan (the gardener) sued and won at trial. At trial the case was called Swan v. Guille.

However, when Guille lost at trial, he had to appeal. On appeal the person appealing is (usually) listed first, hence the case was called Guille v. Swan.


OK. It's clear. I hadn't thought of the possibility of an appeal.

Thanks again.
