This case proves a valuable lesson to those Attorneys.
They were ordered to pay the costs of their application when they offered no medical evidence of their father's incapacity when making the appeal
I shall make no order for costs in respect of the proceedings up to 25 March 2015, when District Judge Mort made his final order, and I shall order that thereafter the costs of the applicants and the respondent are to be assessed on the standard basis and paid by the attorneys. It was unreasonable for the attorneys to pursue the question of Ken's capacity to revoke the EPA in light of Dr Viale's compelling evidence, as supplemented by the opinion of Dr Hughes. In addition, their solicitor acted improperly when he inveigled the Public Guardian into disregarding District Judge Mort's order directing him to cancel the registration of the instrument.
