Keeping clear on costs: Geatches v Anglo Coal (Moranbah North Management Pty Ltd)  QSC 106
Jackson, Sheryl (2014) Keeping clear on costs: Geatches v Anglo Coal (Moranbah North Management Pty Ltd)  QSC 106. Proctor, 34(8), pp. 42-43.
In Geatches v Anglo Coal (Moranbah North Management Pty Ltd  QSC 106, a dispute arose in the context of an assessment of costs as to the meaning to be attributed to particular terms of settlement and discharge signed by the parties. The court was required to consider the implications of those documents, and of a subsequent consent order intended to reflect the agreed settlement.
Recovery of costs - terms of settlement and discharge exclude recovery of costs against one party and require other party to pay costs of claim against it - whether only subsequent consent order should be construed - implications where costs were common and mixed costs - whether costs should be apportioned
