*R (on the application of Crawford) v University of Newcastle Upon Tyne

Costs – Order for costs. Following a judgment in the favour of the defendant university, the issue of costs remained. The claimant student submitted that no order as to costs should be made, as the defendant had unreasonably failed to engage in alternative dispute resolution and had not succeeded on all the issues in the proceedings. The Administrative Court held that, in the circumstances, the appropriate order in the case was that the claimant should pay the defendant's costs in the case subject to detailed assessment if not agreed.
