Parker v Butler

Costs – Order for costs. The Queen's Bench Division held that, for the purposes of the qualified one way costs shifting (QOCS) regime, any appeal which concerned the outcome of a claim for damages for personal injuries or the procedure by which it was to be determined was part of the proceedings as defined in CPR 44.13. Therefore, an order for costs against the claimant in favour of a defendant would only be enforceable to the extent permitted by the QOCS regime.
