Jones and Another v Congregational and General Insurance plc: QBD 2 May 2003

The claimants had lost their claim on an insurance policy, and had had costs awarded against them subject only to the issue of whether the fact that they had been legally aided protected them.
Held: The applicants had been found to be guilty of fraud, both as to the underlying claim, and in their applications for legal aid. They were accordingly not entitled to the protection which those with a legal aid certificate would normally receive.
