*Wain v Gloucestershire County Council and others

Practice – Civil litigation. The claimant contended that the fourth defendant should be treated as having filed her costs budget comprising only the applicable court fees, under CPR 3.14, as she had served it six clear days before the hearing, rather than the requisite seven. The fourth defendant sought relief from sanctions. The Technology and Construction Court held that the fourth defendant could rely upon her costs budget as served, as the non-compliance or breach had been trivial and/or insignificant and/or inconsequential.
