Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of LEASK) v SOUTH WESTERN MAGISTRATES COURT (2007)

PUBLISHED May 9, 2007

[2007] EWHC 1233 (Admin)

A magistrates' court, by its decision maker, erred in refusing to extend the period for taxation of costs pursuant to the Costs in Criminal Cases (General) Regulations 1986 reg.12 as it failed to have proper regard as to whether there was either a good reason for extending the period for taxation or an existence of exceptional circumstances to permit such an extension.
