(1) Maria Galazi (2) Iphegenia Galazis (Claimants) v (1) Christopher Christoforou & 5 Ors (Defendants) & Wellsford Securities Ltd (Third Party) & Ors

Judgment Date: 26 Mar 2019

The court construed the words "claim" and "proceedings" in CPR Pt 38 when determining that substantial amendments made by the claimants to their particulars of claim effectively amounted to discontinuance so that they were subject to the default position under r.38.6(1) that a discontinuing party was liable to pay the other parties' costs. It considered the correct approach to the absence of a notice of discontinuance and examined the costs consequences of discontinuance and amendment.
