Dean and Dean Solicitors v DionissiouMoussaoui: CA 17 Nov 2011

The court considered the limited role of an appellate court, being vested only with jurisdiction to entertain questions of law when it considers a Tribunal’s decision on the question of costs. Mummery LJ said: ‘This court is not entitled to interfere with the ET’s discretion, even if, had it been exercising the ET’s discretion, this court might have analysed the situation of the parties in greater depth, or given more detailed reasons for its decision, or acceded to the application to the extent of making an order for payment of some of the costs.’
