HI Alex
I'm trying to avoid it. If they do proceed then I may contest it. It all depends on the costs and who pays. I need to factor that in to my risk balance.Thanks
Ok - then generally the rule is the losing party pays. So if it was the case then you did not contest it a Judge may not award costs. But if you did contest it and they won they they may get costs.However costs are discretionary, its up to the Judge.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

Thanks Alex. Does there have to be a trial at some point or is the injunction a stand alone event and the judge decides costs at the time?
If its contested yes, there will be a trial.Does that clarify?Alex
