oa De Rebus - The time has come for a radical revision
The case of Rockey and Witherow (Pty) Ltd. vs The Taxing Master and Another was a review of taxation that was heard by the N.P.D. and in which judgment was given by James J. P. on the 17th December, 1969. The major issues involved counsel's fees which were claimed in the Bill of Costs at R125 for a fee on brief to argue an appeal, and R90 for opposing an application for leave to appeal to the A.D. and which were allowed by the taxing master at R50 and R40 respectively, leaving the unfortunate successful litigant with attorney and client disbursements of R125 in a master in which the claim amounted to only R650.00.
