Dooly v The Great Northern Railway Company: 27 Jan 1860

By reason of stat. 11 Hen. 7, c. 12, and Reg. Gen. Hil. 1853, r. 121, where a plaintiff sues in forma pauperis, arid obtains a verdict arid the Judge’s certificate for costs, whatever be the amount recovered, nothing is to be allowed on taxation of costs in respect of fees to the plaintiffs counsel, or by way of remuneration for the services of the plaintiff’s attorney. In a case where the Court bad previously so held, the Court now refused an application by the plaintiff for a rule to enter a suggestion on the roll to deprive the plaintiff of costs; the object of the application being that error might be brought on the former decision, and the Court holding that error could riot be brought.
