Costs - Order for costs - Clinical negligence claim - Majority of costs incurred before introduction of new rules of procedure - Defendant claiming that total sum assessed disproportionate - Whether costs order should be interfered with - Guidance on approach to costs orders in clinical negligence claims under new rules of procedure - CPR 44, 51.
Whilst, in view of the transitional provisions in the CPR relating to costs, the court would not interfere with decision of a costs judge in a clinical negligence claim where most of the costs had been incurred before the coming into effect of the CPR, the court gave guidance on the approach to be taken under the CPR to costs in such claims.
