Part 36 and costs reform

I indicated recently that Lord Justice Jackson had ensured he sat in a case about Part 36 and costs.I now see why.In Pankhurst v Lee, just published,he describes the funding arrangements as grotesque, resulting in solicitors getting a massive return for no risk.This case could not have come at a worse time for those arguing that cfas are just.A disaster.Thanks to Simon Butler for letting me know that the decision had been released.
