Conlon v Royal Sun Alliance Insurance plc

Costs – Order for costs. In the claimant's appeal, the parties agreed that the only remaining issue was costs. The claimant accepted, for the purposes of the appeal, that the court could not make an order for costs on the appeal unless it decided that the defendant's behaviour had been unreasonable or it re-allocated the claim from the small claims track to the multi-track. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that there was nothing unreasonable about the defendant's behaviour and that it was not appropriate to re-allocate the claim to the multi-track or make a costs order against the defendant.
