Costs management – relief from sanctions under CPR 3.9

One of the things I had hoped to achieve before setting off to ILTA was a post pulling together what one knows of reports of relief from sanctions cases under Civil Procedure Rule 3.9 specifically relating to costs management and budgets.

I am relieved of this non-trivial task by the fact that costs lawyer Andy Ellis has written just such an article, published today by the Law Society Gazette with the heading Relief from sanctions in costs budgeting

The report is right up to date, including the main points made by Master McCloud in the “plebgate” libel action on which I wrote here.

You won’t find a better survey than Andy’s article of the factors which the courts are taking into account as they reconcile strict duty with fairness.
