SANCTIONS: Budgeting blunder

02 December 2016  

Maura McIntosh reports on a recent application of the Mitchell sanction

In the recently reported case of Jamadar v Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2016], Jackson LJ delivered the leading judgment dismissing an appeal against the imposition of the so-called Mitchell sanction where a party failed to file a costs budget when required to do so, so that he was treated as having filed a budget limited to court fees.
