Restraining Order Costs Awarded
20 February 2017
In a rare achievement for a law firm acting for a Respondent in a Restraining Order matter, Sherlock Legal was successful in obtaining a costs order against an Applicant who failed in his bid to have a Restraining Order made. Mr Cook appeared and persuaded the Court that the application was frivolous, and accordingly the Court made a costs order against the Applicant under section 69 of the Restraining Orders Act 1997 (WA).
