SHERI EVERETT v LONDON FIRE & EMERGENCY PLANNING AUTHORITY (COSTS) (2014)

News

High Court

Christopher Edwards acted for the Claimant’s former solicitors in this case which considered the nuanced issue of who is the successful party pursuant to CPR part 44. The Claimant had recovered less than 1% of her pleaded damages after a six day liability and quantum trial; no offers had been made by the Defendant except ‘drop hands’, and the trial had been adjourned once at the Claimant’s application.  The court ordered that the Claimant recover the vast majority of her costs.

This is the most recent High Court authority considering the Court of Appeal’s two decisions in 2011 in the cases of Fox v Foundation Piling Ltd and Medway Primary Care Trust v Marcus.
