Indemnity costs have been made to a claimant who made a £1 Part 36 offer and was awarded £10 damages.
In its ruling, the Court said it is "a high hurdle" to obtain departure from the costs consequences of Part 36.
"The authorities are clear that the test of an injustice is a high hurdle. No court will easily set aside the Part 36 consequences of litigating, when a judgment confirms an outcome a claimant could have achieved by other means if a defendant had engaged on commercial terms."
