Solicitor - Costs - Bill of costs for contentious business - Action to recover costs - Whether proceedings should be heard by costs judge or High Court judge.
As a general principle, questions of costs and related questions, even when arising in a common law context, were best determined by a costs judge rather than a High Court judge or a circuit judge. However, a High Court judge or a circuit judge had jurisdiction to determine such issues.
