Relief from sanctions blog launched


In the Court Of Appeal decision in Mitchell v News Group [2013] EWCA Civ 1537; [2014] 1 WLR 795; [2013] 6 Costs LR 1008 the Court emphasised the new, tougher and more robust, approach that would be taken in respect of applications for relief from sanctions specifically and to non-compliance with rules, orders and practice directions generally.

The members of Thirty Nine Essex Street have launched the ‘Relief from Sanctions Update’ to bring together as many examples as possible of the way judicial thinking his changed in this ‘post-Mitchell’ era. It is hoped that this will be a useful resource for practitioners in dealing with case management issues in their own practice.
