Colwill v European Heritage Ltd

Costs – Order for costs. The judge dismissed the claimant's claim for rent from the defendant, ordered him to pay the defendant's costs and purportedly awarded the defendant a sum on its counterclaim. The claimant was granted permission to appeal against the award, on the ground that the defendant had only sought set off. The defendant conceded that point. The claimant consented to the disposal of the appeal, if the defendant disclosed documents. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division allowed the appeal with respect to the award by consent. However, it ordered the claimant to pay the defendant's costs from his consent to the disposal, given the history of the matter.
