Graham L. Ross - Early Suggestion of No Fault Compensation
In a letter to Mr D Watters of the Haemophilia Society, solicitor Graham Ross somehow reveals as early as 1986 (nearly 3 years before the Haemophilia HIV Litigation got properly underway) that in relation to investigating the cases of haemophiliacs:

"the final outcome would be some element of no fault compensation for all haemophiliacs".

Note: It is extremely odd that a solicitor should mention "no fault compensation" (which could be considered a "compromise") in an opinion disclosed so early on. In fact, the opinion was committed to paper nearly 3 years before the Haemophilia / HIV Litigation really got off the ground.
