When is a plaintiff entitled to costs for preparation and attendance at trial based on one and one-half counsel?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Maras v. Seemore Entertainment Ltd., 2014 BCSC 1842 (CanLII):

When I consider what occurred in Wallman v. Doe, Burnett v. Moir, and my own involvement in this case as a result of judicial case management, I conclude that the plaintiff should receive his costs for preparation and attendance at trial based on one and one-half counsel, but not two.
