KENT, R (ON THE APPLICATION OF) V TEESSIDE MAGISTRATES COURT

Aarhus Convention Claims, Interested Parties And The Cost Of Legal Research

In this short judgment following a determination by the court that the Aarhus Convention applied to the claim Mr Justice Freedman went on to determine costs as between the Claimant and Interested Party. The latter had actively sought to oppose the Claimant having Aarhus costs protection whilst the Defendant had maintained a neutral stance.

The decision also addressed the oft-debated issue of costs related to legal research.
