Sore losers May 27, 2020

After their less than stunning day in court guess who is appealing the High Court ruling on their challenge to Covid-19 pandemic measures? That’s right, a certain duo.

And entertainingly:

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

My favourite bit in the report is following:

During the hearing, Ms Doherty rejected Mr Justice Meenan’s contention that some of her submissions were speeches and “utterly pointless” in relation to the issues of costs.

She told the court that “the courts belongs as much to me as they do to you”.

Sure, why doesn’t she ask him to leave the bench for a few minutes to allow her make the ruling in the case?

The entitlement is… just breathtaking.
