When assessing, years after the event, the value of a claim in an action for negligence against a solicitor for failing to advise on the risk of striking out, the action had to be judged with reference to the statutory procedural provisions in force at the time of the matter complained of. Cases on the interpretation of those provisions had to be followed, whether or not they had been decided when the provisions were in force, as it would be wrong to assess the value of the claim by reference to what, looking back, amounted to a wrong view of the law.

[2005] EWHC 899 (QB)
