Not all of the proposals contained in Lord Justice Jackson’s Review of Civil Litigation Costs require primary legislation. One of the intriguing questions is the extent to which the judiciary will quietly introduce some of his ideas.
Andrew Parker, writing in the New Law Journal, said: "Anecdotally one or two County Courts are already taking steps to apply some of the ideas on fast track costs".
I haven’t had enough cases proceed to detailed assessment yet to form any view. Have any readers begun to see Jackson influencing the courts already?
