Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has withdrawn its application for legal costs from members of the Community Action for Windsor Bridge committee. RMS knows it could not have won costs as a judge has to consider if:
1. The litigation raises one or more novel issues of general importance
2. The litigation has contributed, in a material way, to the proper understanding, development or administration of the law
3. Where the litigation is brought to protect the environment or some component of it, the environment or component is of significant value and importance
4. The litigation affects a significant section of the public
5. There was no financial gain for the applicant in bringing the proceedings.
