Supreme Court Hears Permission Costs Appeal

Ned Westaway
Esther Drabkin-Reiter

The Supreme Court is today hearing the appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision in Campaign to Protect Rural England – Kent Branch v SSCLG [2019] EWCA Civ 1230 (judgment here).

The issue before the Court which is potentially of very wide importance is whether a claimant in statutory and judicial review cases who is unsuccessful at the permission stage should be liable for the costs of multiple other parties, including respondents and interested parties.

The Appellant's case can be viewed here.

Ned Westaway and Esther Drabkin-Reiter are acting for the Appellant.
