R (on the application of RA) v Director of Public Prosecutions

Costs – Order for costs. The Administrative Court refused to revoke or set aside an order that the defendant Director of Public Prosecutions (the DPP) pay the claimant's costs of £20,000. There was no good reason for invoking the power to vary or revoke the order, as there was no excuse for the DPP having failed to lodge submissions opposing the claimant's application for his costs or even having made a belated application for her costs.
