According to the website of William McCormick QC, one of the barristers acting for Simon Singh, the the British Chiropractic Association has served a "Notice of Discontinuance".
The case is over.
There is no news on the costs position.
More information to come...
The BCA has now published a press release.
(Hat tip to The Heresiarch.)
Barrister and skeptic Simon Bradshaw has helpfully pointed out in the comments below aboutCivil Procedure Rule 38.6:
38.6— Liability for costs
(1) Unless the court orders otherwise, a claimant who discontinues is liable for the costs which a defendant against whom the claimant discontinues incurred on or before the date on which notice of discontinuance was served on the defendant.
We need further information before we know for certain that Rule 38.6(1) applies, but I suspect that this would at least be the starting point.
