Siddiqui v Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Oxford

Costs – Order for costs. There was no authority for the proposition that, in order for the exception to qualified one-way costs shifting (QOCS) in CPR 44.16(2)(b) to apply, a personal injury claim and a non-personal injury claim had to be divisible. The Queen's Bench Division further held that some part of time spent on the claimant's non-personal injury claim should be reflected in the order made, though not so as to unfairly deprive him of the legitimate QOCS protection to which, by virtue of the acknowledged personal injury element of the claim, he was entitled.
