As the new CPR provisions dealing with case and costs management begin to be applied, a tougher, less forgiving approach is discernible in some sections of the judiciary. It is becoming commonplace to hear judges speak of the need for a new hard-line approach but whilst it is clear that some judges are walking the talk, others remain happy to just talk.

This FOIL update studies the latest developments.

Topics covered:

- Commercial claims.

- Mesothelioma claims.

- Hard cases.

- Report on the costs budgeting pilot.
