Takavarasha v London Borough of Newham and Others: EAT 7 Jun 2013

EAT Practice and Procedure : Appellate Jurisdiction/Reasons/Burns-Barke – Costs – Two out of three grounds permitted to proceed to full hearing at a preliminary hearing fell away in light of the Employment Tribunal answers to Burns-Barke questions then raised.
No error of law by ET in awarding costs against the Appellant reflecting his earning potential.
Costs ordered in the appeal, again taking account of his means and the Burns-Barke answers which wholly undermined the first two grounds of appeal.
