Judgement of $35,886 Receives Cost Award of $35,000:

In Tan v Storstac ( no citation provided ) Justice Dinnen had a situation where the Plaintiff received a judgement for $35,886 which was considerably better than the Plaintiff’s Rule 49 offer of $23,000 made back in March of 2021.

The Judge then awarded costs of $35,000.

Lets do some math :

If they accepted the Plaintiff’s Rule 49 offer it would have cost them only $23,000 plus their own costs to date, say $5,000 for a total of $28,000

Instead they will have to pay :

$35,886 for the claim
$35,000 for the costs award
$23,761 for their own lawyer

Total : $94,647
