Costs in the Federal Court
Notice to the Parties and Profession
April 30, 2010
During the hearing of a motion, application or action the parties should be prepared to inform the Court as to whether they have agreed on the disposition and/or quantum of costs.
If the parties have not settled the disposition and/or quantum of costs, they should be prepared to make submissions on those issues to the presiding judge or prothonotary before the end of the hearing.
With the cooperation of litigants, this practice direction will reduce any unnecessary delay and expense that may result from the taxation of costs in the Federal Court.
