United Kingdom - Court of Appeal - R (on the application of Sonia Burkett) v London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham ([2004] EWCA Civ 1342) - Summary with link to judgment

Costs – The first case in which the Court of Appeal expressed concern about the high legal costs incurred by claimants in environmental litigation. The Court remarked that this may be a potent factor in deterring litigation directed towards protecting the environment from harm and, therefore, questioned the UK's compliance with the Aarhus Convention, to which it is a signatory.
