Article summary

This week, in Newland, the Commercial Court dismissed applications for rule 3.9 relief from sanctions and to revoke or vary a judgment under Rule 3.1(7); instead it acted ‘robustly’ applying both the Tibbles criteria and the finding in Mitchell. In another costs budgeting case, Pank, the TCC held that a party’s failure to include a full statement of truth on a costs budget constituted an irregularity rather than rendering the budget a nullity. In addition and of note, the Supreme Court in Cramaso LLP has also considered the question of to whom are duties of care owed when making pre-contractual representations. We continue to focus on providing a roundup of key news stories from the last week highlighting their practical implications as well as updating our Practice Notes to ensure you are kept up to date. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
