“Having previously been found in contempt of Court, Ms Rothery has today attended Court and complied with the Court’s order to provide information as to her financial means, thus purging her contempt.
“She could have easily avoided this situation and avoided yet again wasting court time and taxpayers money.
“A barrister attended Court on behalf of the Judgment Creditors (Cuadrilla and the landowners) as the Court required him to do so.
“The outstanding costs were awarded against Ms Rothery in October 2014 for wasting court time by failing to submit a defence after asking for a time extension in order to do so, the debt will remain unpaid and we will not pursue costs whilst she clearly has no assets to make any payment.
“The position will be kept under review and revisited should Ms Rothery’s financial circumstances change.”
The only costs Cuadrilla got were minor for the seismic array appeal. Don't know how much but maybe as little as £10,000. Planning appeals are not like court cases when the loser automatically has to pay. Planning appeals have much more discretion. After all, the Inspector refused Roseacre Wood appeal which I think is Cuadrilla's prime site, but did not award costs to LCC.
