RELIEF FROM SANCTIONS: THE CASES: AN IMPRESSIVE AND THEMATIC LIST

I am grateful to barrister Matthew White for drawing my attention to an impressive table that he has prepared with his colleague Marcus Coates-Walker.  They have set out, in tabular form, the post-Denton cases on relief from sanctions, analysing each case by subject area.

RELIEF FROM SANCTIONS: A SUMMARY OF CASES

This work, updated to the 20th April 2017, is available here.  It lists and tabulates all the post-Denton cases by theme.

  • Pre-action
  • Costs budgets
  • Pleadings
  • Disclosure
  • Witness statements
  • Expert evidence
  • Pre-trial
  • Trial
  • Appeals
  • Costs
  • Overarching principles
  • Miscellaneous

This is 96 pages of very useful information.   It provides a useful insight both into cases but also the source of problems. There are, for instance, a surprisingly large number of cases relating to default and pleadings. Equally worryingly is the number of cases that relate to late service of witness evidence.
