Costs Orders for costs. The Technology and Construction Court had previously dismissed the claimant company's action for breach and repudiation of a contract. The claimant sought a reduction of the costs payable on the basis of the successful defendant's unwillingness to engage in mediation. The court found that the defendant had not acted unreasonably and made no reduction to its costs, which were to be assessed on the standard basis.
