This was heard before HHJ Gregory in the Walsall County Court. C had issued part 8 proceedings to recover costs following a personal injury claim. D’s costs draftsmen sought clarification of various issues before making an offer. In response, C issued the Part 8 proceedings.

It was held that per r.46.14 (1) Part 8 proceedings should only be issued where the parties had been unable to agree costs. Where, as here, C had not made any attempt to agree the costs it was premature to issue the claim. As a result the Part 8 proceedings were struck out.
