This is a postscript to an earlier post about the Chorley exception, a legal rule that although self-represented litigants are not entitled to professional costs in acting for themselves in court proceedings, there is an exception where a solicitor is self-represented. It is named after the decision in London Scottish Benefit Society v Chorley (1884) 13 QBD 87.
After giving special leave to appeal from the decision of the NSW Court of Appeal in Coshott v Spencer  NSWCA 118, where the rule was applied, the High Court decided, mid-hearing, to revoke the special leave: Coshott v Spencer  HCATrans 81. The matter was found not to be appropriate for a special leave determination as to whether the exception still applied. The rule therefore still stands.
And the rule has now been extended further, to barristers representing themselves in court: see Pentelow v Bell Lawyers Pty Ltd  NSWCA 150.
