Application in Private (CPR Pt 36 offers: permission to accept)

Practice – Offer to settle. The claimants' application to accept a Pt 36 offer made by the defendants succeeded, and the defendants' application to withdraw the offer failed, in a case concerning the alleged anti-competitive effect of the Multilateral Interchange Fee paid by acquirers to issuers of debit/credit cards. There was nothing unjust about the defendants being held to the offer that they had made.
