Paul Jones reviews if a defendant can be reimbursed for payments which are now unnecessary after a change in the RTA protocol

During the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, the democratic government of Athens was overthrown in 411 BC by a coup from a group known as The Four Hundred. Nearly 2,500 years later, a group known as the ‘400 Club’ made an appearance at the Court of Appeal in relation to the somewhat less dramatic issue of fixed recoverable costs in road traffic accidents.
