Can the postponement (by a month) of a proposed trial start date have a big impact on the importance of a Part 36 offer that was made just eight days before the now superseded proposed trial start date?
The proposed trial start date was only seven days away/next week. However, that proposed trial start date has today been postponed by a month. Bearing in mind CPR 36.17(7), might the postponement potentially have a big impact on the importance of the Part 36 offer that was made by one of the parties only yesterday?
