Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police v Thurlow

Costs – Criminal cases. The appellant Chief Constable appealed by way of case stated against the justices' order to pay the respondent's costs of a withdrawn application for a sexual offences prevention order. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the justices had not properly exercised their discretion to award costs against the Chief Constable, as he had not acted unreasonably in having made the application or in withdrawing it.
