Costs based on adverse publicity

In the case of Iteshi v Office of Water Services, the respondent employer was awarded costs against the claimant because of a ‘campaign beyond the proceedings' he had conducted. Mr Iteshi had attracted pre-trial publicity by making allegations of fraud via his MP, intended to criticise and discredit employment tribunals. The EAT held that this was unreasonable, vexatious and an abuse of process and that costs could be awarded against him even though no costs warning had been made in advance.
