Welcome to the weekly highlights from the Lexis®PSL Dispute Resolution team for the week ending 28 May 2015. In this week’s edition we highlight analysis of the Court of Appeal’s decisions on relief from sanctions in the context of extensions of time for expert evidence (Elliott) and damages for diminution in value of property (Raymond), as well as decisions of the High Court on a broad range of topics including: indemnity costs (Network Rail), Part 36 (Thai Airways), malicious prosecution of civil claims (Willers), and setting aside judgments for fraud (Chodiev). Following the release of the March and April Civil Procedure Rules Committee (CPRC) minutes, we have created new Practice Notes that gather together the key documents for easy access. We also highlight items of interest from the minutes below. As usual, the Lexis®PSL Dispute Resolution team has been updating numerous Practice Notes to reflect recent decisions and developments: for more details, see the ‘New and updated’ section below.
