McGlinn v HTA & Ors

[2007] EWHC 698 (TCC)


The Claimant was awarded 45% of his costs despite having beaten a Part 36 payment.  He was also ordered to pay 25% of the Defendant's costs.  In a judgment illustrating the breadth of the court's discretion on costs under the CPR, the Judge ruled that although the Claimant had substantially succeeded on liability, the Defendant was the substantial victor on causation and quantum.
