The Jackson Reforms: Costs Budgets and Strike Outs
Tom Gibson recently wrote an article – ‘A Costs Budgeting Horror Story’ – about a (true) story of a costs budget being struck out for a technical error in an early post-Jackson personal injury case.
The article was published in PI Brief Update and is available at http://www.pibriefupdate.com/content/law-journal-summaries/news-category-2-53514/2250-a-costs-budgeting-horror-story-tom-gibson-outer-temple-chambers
Since the article was published, several other stories of costs budgets being struck out – or not struck out – for exactly the same technical error (with a budget’s statement of truth wording) have emerged from county courts around the country.
With several appeals currently in progress, 2014 looks set to be a busy year for early post-Jackson case law.
