Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of DAVID PLUCKROSE) v SNARESBROOK CROWN COURT (2009)

PUBLISHED June 9, 2009

[2009] EWHC 1506 (Admin)

Where the Crown Court had shown mercy in quashing a disqualification from driving imposed in respect of a motorist who had pleaded guilty to a road traffic offence, it was entitled to refuse to make a defendant's costs order in the motorist's favour notwithstanding that he had been successful in his appeal against disqualification.
