Via The Irish Times:

Gemma O’Doherty and John Waters are facing a substantial legal bill after the High Court ruled they must pay the costs of their failed attempt to challenge laws brought in due to Covid-19.

In a ruling on Thursday morning, Mr Justice Charles Meenan said the pair should pay the legal costs of both the State respondents and the notice parties, the Dáil, Seanad and the Ceann Comhairle.

Mr Waters and Ms O’ Doherty, who claim the laws are unconstitutional, are appealing the dismissal of their action to the Court of Appeal.

This morning/afternoon.

Via The Irish Examiner:

High Court today was told of their intention to appeal Mr Justice Charles Meenan’s decision as the court heard arguments as to who should pay the legal costs of their action against the State and the Minister for Health.

The Dáil, the Seanad and the Ceann Comhairle were notice parties to the action.

When making submissions to the court on the issues of costs, both Ms O’Doherty and Mr Waters said they would be appealing the court’s refusal to grant them leave to mount a legal challenge to the Court of Appeal.

They argued that the court should not order them to pay the legal costs of the State or the notice parties on grounds including that their action was brought in the public interest.
