Patience v Tanner and another

Costs – Order for costs. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the judge had been justified to have held that the appellant should not have his costs after 29 May 2014, which was the date on which an offer to settle lapsed, but, in the circumstances, the judge had been neither entitled nor obliged to have gone further and ordered the appellant to pay the respondents' costs thereafter. The appeal would be allowed to the extent that there would be 'no order as to costs' after 29 May.
