McClelland v The Chief Constable of Sussex Police (Wasted Costs)

News | Thu 18th Jul, 2019

Last week HHJ Simpkiss sitting as a judge of the High Court gave judgment in the wasted costs proceedings in the case of McClelland v The Chief Constable of Sussex Police.  Finding in favour of the applicant Chief Constable the Court determined that the Claimant’s legal representatives, Sophie Khan & Co Solicitors had acted unreasonably in (i) failing to amend the Claimant’s claim as directed and (ii) in opposing an application for relief from sanctions following a 44 minute delay in the Chief Constable serving witness evidence and that it was appropriate to make an order for wasted costs.

The Chief Constable was represented by Ian Clarke of 1 Chancery Lane and Ms Khan was represented by PJ Kirby QC
