R (on the application of Baxter (through his mother and litigation friend Cheryl Baxter)) v Lincolnshire County Council

Costs – Judicial review. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed a claimant's appeal which raised the issue of how costs should be determined in the Administrative Court when the parties had settled their differences in an agreed order which recorded that the liability for costs should be determined by a single judge on the papers. The judge had been fully entitled to the view that the claimant had not obtained all the relief he had sought and it had not been shown that her conclusion, that there should be no order for costs, had fallen outside the range of decisions that had been open to her, or that it had been founded on any error of law or principle.
