JB (Costs)  EWCOP 49
Application for costs against the LA who had withdrawn an application for an injunction. The costs application succeeded.
The residential unit where the P lived required him to leave. The LA was seeking an injunction to prevent this from happening. The LA subsequently withdrew the injunction application and was ordered to pay the costs incurred by residential unit. The current hearing was an application by the P's mother and the OS for their costs to be paid.
The court made the order sought. The injunction application was totally without merit. The LA's conduct in making and pursuing the application amounted to unreasonable conduct which justified a departure from the usual rule of no order for costs.
