Corstorphine (an infant who proceeds by his mother and litigation friend Ellis) v Liverpool City Council

Costs – Order for costs. The judge was wrong to conclude that the QOCS regime did not apply to the claim brought by the claimant against the second and third defendants, who were joined to the proceedings following a Part 20 claim being brought against them by the first defendant. The Court of Appeal, Civil Divisions, held that in consequence, he had wrongly ordered the claimant to pay the costs of the second and third defendant which the first defendant had been ordered to pay, and the decision should be set aside.
