Burt v Wells

LTL 26/7/99 (unreported elsewhere) 1999-07-26

Where on an interlocutory application, defendants were awarded their costs in any event and the plaintiff was legally aided it was wrong to make a wasted costs order against the plaintiff's solicitors; the correct course was to bring to the attention of the costs officer the provisions of reg.109 Civil Legal Aid (General) Regulations 1989 which entitled him to disallow wasted costs or reduce the bill.
