Costs Order for costs. Court of Appeal, Civil Division: Where a final consent order had been agreed between the parties prior to a judicial review hearing, the judge had been correct to make no order for costs save for a detailed assessment of the claimant's publicly funded costs, since he had plainly considered the issues and had reached a reasoned conclusion. Moreover, the case before him was far from straightforward since it was not clear cut who would have won and who would have lost.
