This week we have reported Chambers, in which the QBD dismissed an application for relief from sanctions under Rule 3.9 finding that there was no good reason for the non-trivial breach. In addition to a number of other cases, in Courtwell, we reported that following the settlement of a dilapidations claim shortly before trial, Akenhead J refused to award the claimant indemnity costs, being unable to decide that the defendants had behaved badly prior to their accepting the claimant’s CPR 36 offer. We continue to focus on providing a roundup of key news stories from the last week highlighting their practical implications as well as expanding and updating our Practice Notes to ensure you are kept up to date.
