COSTS: Show me the money

05 October 2016  

Rick Brown and Victoria Cowan examine recent case law on security for costs post judgment

Security for costs orders are regularly sought at an early stage of a claim by defendants seeking to protect their ability to recover costs from an unsuccessful claimant, but, until recently, there has been limited case law relating to whether they can be applied for post judgment. This was discussed at length in the recent case of Republic of Djibouti v Boreh [2016].
