NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group v LB (by her litigation friend, the Official Solicitor) and another

Costs – Order for costs. The present was not an appropriate case for an order for costs against the applicant for what were intended to be test cases, seeking clarification of the law concerning the deprivation of liberty of mentally incapacitated adults, but were later withdrawn. Accordingly, the Court of Protection held that there would be no order as to costs in the proceedings, save for a detailed assessment of the respondents' publicly funded costs.
