Costs – The Court of Appeal established guidelines for the level of“reciprocal costs caps” for claimants in relation to the granting of Protective Cost Order (PCO). The Court rejected the notion that generally the defendant’s liability for costs should be capped in the same amount as the claimant, holding that it would depend on the circumstances.
