Ruling of the Tribunal on a costs application by Stagecoach.

As regards the Commission’s unsuccessful strike out application, the Tribunal concluded that Stagecoach was entitled to its costs of that application.

As regards the costs of the main hearing, the Tribunal concluded that the Commission should pay Stagecoach the sum of £200,000 in respect of its costs. The Tribunal concluded that such an award serves the justice of the case by requiring that Stagecoach, the party who successfully challenged the Decision, receive its costs less a material discount in respect of unsuccessful grounds deployed in its Application.
