Legal Protection Group is delighted to bring you the latest edition of ATEMatters with our take on the latest decisions and judgments affecting the world of litigation, funding and insurance. This month we start with a Supreme Court decision to depart from an assumed test as to whether a covenant restrictive of the use of land was in restraint of trade. Glover v Barker considers the sometimes difficult position of a litigation friend’s liability for costs. A very interesting case next resulting in a decision determining the judge was not entitled to evaluate evidence on causation. CPR 45.29I (2)(c) comes under the spotlight and is well worth noting and we finish this edition with the potentially emotive subject of a patient’s capacity to consent to treatment.
