Khaira and Others v Shergill and Others: CA 27 Oct 2017

‘This appeal raises technical but important issues on the entitlement of a party who is awarded the costs of an interlocutory appeal to an immediate assessment of those costs. Two issues of general application arise. First, is the party entitled to an immediate assessment without the need for an express order to that effect? Secondly, if not and if the appellate court has not made an order for an immediate assessment, does a costs judge have jurisdiction to make such an order? A third issue is whether an order of the Supreme Court made in this case entitled the respondents to this appeal to an immediate assessment of their costs in the Court of Appeal.’
