Laporte and another v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis

Costs – Order for costs. In a previous case, the claimants lost and they asserted that there should be no order for costs because the defendant had refused to engage in ADR. In response, the defendant sought an award of costs against the claimants on an indemnity basis. The Queen's Bench Division noted the defendant's failure to engage in ADR but held that such a shortcoming was not sufficient to disentitle it from claiming any costs.
