Judgment (Interim payment and costs)

Neutral citation:

[2009] CAT 3


30 Jan 2009



At the same time as directing that the assessment of the Consumers’ Association’s costs be transferred to the Supreme Court Costs Office for detailed assessment (see [2009] CAT 2) the Tribunal directed JJB Sports plc to pay the Consumers’ Association 30% of the costs claimed, by way of an interim payment.

In addition, the Tribunal awarded JJB a portion of its costs relating to the application to transfer the assessment of costs to the Supreme Court Costs Office and directed that those costs recoverable by JJB could be set off against the costs recoverable by the Consumers’ Association.
