'Fundamental misunderstanding' about Paul's fight

Paul Lamb's lawyer Saimo Chahal, who also represents the Nicklinson family said there is a "fundamental misunderstanding" about Paul's fight. She said:

If Paul did win the right, the cases would have to be on a case by case basis, so it wouldn't be a matter of vulnerable people suffering.
