Judgment (Application for withdrawal and costs)

Neutral citation:

[2003] CAT 2


3 Mar 2003



On Hasbro’s request to withdraw their appeal in relation to the Director’s decision regarding their agreements with their distributors: Held, Hasbro should bear the costs of their unsuccessful request for an extension of time for filing their notice of appeal (see [2003] CAT 1 above). However, in the ‘unusual circumstances’ there would be no order for costs on the rest of the appeal as the Tribunal accepted that Hasbro were in some difficulty in deciding whether or not to appeal this decision concerning Hasbro, Argos and Littlewoods.
