Key Point

A disposal hearing is a trial for the purposes of SIIIA Fixed costs

Bird v Acorn Group Ltd

[2016] EWCA Civ 1096


The Court of Appeal held that listing a claim for not just a trial still triggered the highest stage of SIIIA CPR 45 fixed costs for cases which leave the Portal. A disposal was a trial for the purposes of fixed SIIIA costs.  There was no requirement for a case to go through all the stages in order.
