Temporary dropping of Costs Budgeting Rules Announced
The High Court has announced a temporary stopping of costs budgeting for clinical negligence cases in London with hearings listed between October 2015 and January 2016. The break has been implemented on the request of Lord Justice Jackson as a result of enormous delays times for CCMCs of 9 months in the Queen’s Division, which he called “unacceptable”.
A spokesman for the Judicial Office stated that:
“As a temporary measure, to clear a backlog of cases, the Queen’s Bench Masters responsible for the case management of clinical negligence cases are exercising this discretion in relation to cases listed before them between October 2015 and January 2016. This approach will be kept under review”.
