Manchester City Council v Manchester Crown Court: 2009

The local authority had unsuccessfully sought an anti-social behaviour order. It failed, and the court now considered the award of costs.
Held: The application had been properly made but had failed only because of progress subsequently made in the application. Burton J applied the principle in Bradford Magistrates to refuse costs to the successful defendant.
