Swift v Carpenter: “Permission to appeal is refused.”

The Court of Appeal today rejected the defendant’s application to appeal to the Supreme Court and dealt with costs issues, making an interim costs award of half a million pounds in the claimant’s favour and awarding additional damages of £65,000 because she had beaten her own Part 36 offer. The brief judgment released this morning may not be the end of the matter if the defendant chooses to apply directly to the Supreme Court.
