Insurance in portal cases

Thanks to Ruth Graham of Berrymans who tells me that there is to be a test case heard in Liverpool as to what level of premium is justified under the 2010 rta portal scheme. There is no costs risk in stage 1 or 2 and a limited sum at stake in stage 3.Many claimants are incurring a premium of about £400, a figure i would have thought unlikely to be upheld ,particularly as the word of the moment is proportionality.
