Costs Contentious probate action. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimant's appeal against a costs order finding that one aspect of the costs order had not been made against him and a second aspect was correct as the judge had not erred in conducting his balancing exercise of the value of the claim against the value of an offer made by the defendant.
